Progress: Wilton House Museum, Side View

Another of the Wilton House Museum and part of a three-peice commission of various vistas of the Wilton estate.

I really like the lines in this piece. The elements (building, pathway, chimneys, tree trunks & bushes) arranged in this manner direct your eye to travel through this scene so directly. I like when I can frame a subject within a composition like this (i.e. edge of the red brick building, tree trunk, chimney & sidewalk framing the yellow house.)

And the summer greens are just delicious. I was trying to capture the reflective light on the house -- a warm invitation to enter. This was such a fun piece to paint.
