Sharon's Shed


"Sharon's Shed"
6x8 oil on canvas

This cute little Shed belongs to my neighbor down the street. She is an antique collector and always has interesting items decorating her shed. I was meaning to paint this shed when she had it surrounded with flowers this summer but now that it is Autumn I thought the fall leaves added interest to the scene.


I used the same limited palette as the last two paintings which are Kevin Macpherson's palette colors.

  6. You are right to realize that natural lighting gives truer color representation when photographing paintings. The best best is to photograph the painting outdoors but not in direct sunlight, a light shaded spot works best. Hugs!
