The idea for the painting from Day 25, Looking In, came from another one I had done with a lot of windows. Looking In was cropped from a portion of that painting and redone, but not exactly, just a similar feeling and some repetition with colors. Today's painting is a portion that I deconstructed from Looking In. I actually cropped the photo of the painting, zoomed in, and used it loosely as a structure to begin the painting process. This painting is done with acrylic so I could have more control. The oil and wax medium allows colors to seep through and change as they dry whereas the acrylic is somewhat more predictable. I love the simplicity that came with cropping in closer and leaving extra details out!
