Pebble Hill

Pebble Hill
Oil on Canvas
8 x10 inches
Auburn, Alabama

Pebble Hill is an old house that sits right across the street from my studio. I have wanted to paint it for years but being so close to the studio I usually talked myself into going in to work on a portrait.
I started this painting at dusk and liked the hot color on the house. However the sun was falling fast and I had to be even faster. Colors changed, shadows disappeared and soon it was moving toward dark.
I finished as the last bit of light faded from the sky and packed my easel in the dark.
