Bedroom - Interiors Series - No. 1.

I decided recently to try my hand at painting interiors. I knew this would be a tough call because I haven't tackled interior scenes since my school years. My attraction to this bedroom scene was the glow of the yellow and the strong contrast between light and dark caused by an overhead light. I chopped and changed my style and process a few times, tried glazes which took ages, and then in the last few days decided to complete it no matter what. I have learned so much from this work, that I am going to do a series of interiors when I have lots of time. There are so many mistakes and I felt that it wasn't good enough to 'publicise' but then again, also decided full disclosure of my work is not a bad thing either.

Anne, I don't see mistakes at all. I think this is wonderful and you've captured the light beautifully. I am sitting here sighing over the bookcase headboard. My two favorite things: reading and laying in bed to do it! LOL I love this interior!

You have so made my morning! Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. We are all too critical of our own work, and I thought that I would just file this work away as an 'exercise' but now I am glad I posted it. Yes, reading in bed is a delight.

I agree with Autumn. I love your use of color in this. I think it is a beautiful interior painting.

Debbie - thanks for stopping by. From your comment and Autumn's I now have confidence that trying an 'interiors series', might be a good idea.

Good perspective and dramatic interpretation of lighting.

Jose - thanks so much for the compliment. I am now working on another painting of the same room. More drama to come!!
