A Corner of the National Gallery


14x11 oil on panel

You might remember that I did a scene like this on cardboard a week or so ago. This time I painted on regular gessoboard but I wanted to keep that "warm" undertone that the cardboard created so I toned it with raw sienna. I also changed the players here a little - I liked this woman's long red coat and how it complemented the tones in Toulouse's painting, "A Corner of the Moulin de la Galette."

I can't believe that last week you painted one of your glorious paintings on cardboard! I do love this one and glad you "upgraded" to a gesso board. Very well done. I find that I can just stare and stare at your paintings ...
