"Tuters"

6 x 6"
oil on masonite
sold

Sometimes I just want to see a setting in miniature form - playing with multiple daubs of paint and not worrying so much about details. I think the color and light make it work and up close, there are nice sweet spots to enjoy.

A scene from the Art Institute of Chicago - I like to call it 'The Tute'.

It's great to get to see the perspective in this painting, and the wonderful blues and violets in the skin of both figures and a dash of turquoise in the walls and the sense of light coming through an unseen window...very exciting!

The use of blues and violets are so subtle but effective in this rendering. Beautiful lighting as always.
