Japanese Tea Garden




Acrylic on Canvas Panel

Again I picked something I thought would be easy and turned out to be far more complex than I thought. That's why I think the sketch worked better. It remained simple and calm.This is a little all over the place with nothing really hitting the mark. I may have to try again.

I love the contrast with the light roof and the shadow of the tree on the right side. The architecture is rendered beautifully. I could tell this was a Japanese style house immediately. I think what may throw it off is that the tones are very similar on the left side and there may not be enough contrast.
