Night time scenes are interesting to interpret. To create the illusion of night I had to establish very deep values. In creating the light I used a little bit of white mixed with an ochre and cadmium yellow medium. I don't often work with such deep values and so it was a challenge for me to deepen them sufficiently. I chose to use black to help deepen the colors a little. This is my dining room/office. I set up my lap top at this table and so I am her often. If you believe that rooms have energy....well, this room holds a very comforting energy to me. The big window on the left looks right out onto a pretty pond. Well, it used to be a nice Lake, but overtime the algae has turned it more into a pond. Several years ago there were 2 alligators living there......scary!! I know that they say that they won't bother you if you leave them alone but, I have dogs and they are a delicacy to an alligator. They were removed, but gosh you never know when one will show up.
