Inspiration, then creation
Every time I walked past this room I was so interested in the sunlight and shadows created by the blinds. Just looking at the photo doesn't convey that much interest or the feeling of warmth, but I really wanted to paint it. So after considering how to paint it I tried two different techniques. The first painting I did using tape batik, the second I painted on gesso applied to watercolor paper. I wanted you to see this as so often I hear people lament that they don't travel, can't find anything to paint. Truly ordinary objects, items that are around us all of the time can create beautiful paintings.
