Another interior painting--this time of my living room. (You can see the first one here.) The living room also has a skylight, which makes for some interesting light in the afternoon. The light was "right" for about 1 hour a day, so I had to paint this over a week. Any passing clouds outside changed the light too, so that added to the challenge.
Anyway, one of my favorite colors is the red of those chairs. In fact, all the reds in the painting reminded me of some of Velazquez's work, which I had on my mind from reading the book sitting on the ottoman.
