Empty House

10" x 10" oil on Panel

This is part of a series of paintings about empty buildings.  Recently I went back to this old house in Mystic CT and it was smoldering embers, guess someone burned it down.   The day I took reference photos, the light was casting strong shadows and there was a lot of warmth in the colors of the house.  Of course I took some liberties to push the value contrast and the house color to an intense warm red/orange against warm and cool lights.
