Doorway Shadow

Doorway Shadow

6x6in oil on canvas panel  85.

This is my entry for the Daily Paintworks Challenge

 The Shadow Challenge. We are asked to find a subject with a dramatic shadow
and to make the shadow an important part of the composition.

Artist Note.

This is done from memory of a beautiful row of doorways in Guadalajara, Mexico.
I really enjoy making the shadow transparent by looking at the color changes
on the different surfaces

  2. Lovely palette knife--lovely doorway. Great memory.

    1. My illustration background helped form my visual memory. It saved a lot of time. Still cannot remember names though!
