Aldo Auto Portrait

back door study

Recently , I have been painting directly from life a great deal.
I enjoy it far more than from photographs . It is much easier to
see subtle colours and tones with your own eyes.

I have completed this sketch , I say sketch , as it was completed in two
separate days about an hour each. The light changes so quickly so I had to do
it like that.

I have had this painting in mind for 2 years, it is our back door to the garden.

The painting is about 12 x 9 inches.
