This is another square painting, as square happens to be in at the moment and fits into any wall space quite well. The title of this painting is
"The Red Door"
I always loved the buildings of this old homestead every time I saw them but I didn't care for the background too much as it was cliffs on the west side of Lough Swilly in Co.Donegal. It just didn't work for me, so I created this landscape and placed the old buildings in it. The colour palette I chose was a warm palette of mainly yellow and oranges. Again with most of my work I'm trying to get as many contrasts as possible.
brooding dark sky v warm summer's day
hard rocks and buildings v soft warm grasses
yellow grasses v violety blue sky
sharp edges to the buildings,rocks and fence v soft grasses,clouds,flowers and trees.
This painting is simple but effective and at last I found a new location for the "Red Door" and I'm pleased with it.
I hope you like it too.
