The other day I was trying to paint a something-or-other, and realized I had no idea how to paint something to suggest it, rather than give all the gory details. It may have been yesterday’s rocky cliffs. In particular, I started to think about buildings and windows. Stucco – brick – stone – how to express it without excess?
I decided lets start with just windows. Here is one set deep into a stucco building. I had to look at the shutters, the shadows, the casement, the small details such as hinges and cracks in the wood, as well as the shadows between the louvers.
