Cottage in the Woods - A New Original Oil Painting

Cottage in the Woods - 8 x 10
Oil on Canvas Panel
Copyright of Dena McMurdie 2009

I love the harmonious autumn colors in this painting. This small cottage sits on the edge of a field, the forest ablaze with vibrant reds, greens, and yellows behind it. I had to paint the field several times to get the value and color just right. Once I was all finished, I noticed that the field looked a little out of place, so I went back and added a few strokes of neutral green to tie it into the rest of the painting.

It's a great age to an artist. There are so many options and mediums to choose from, that the choice is virtually limitless. We mustn't forget where it has all started: The Renaissance Italy which was invaluable for the development of European culture. During this time, there was a great surge in every field of human endeavor, especially in the arts and sciences. Find out more about art and all its wonders on http://monalisa.info/
