Camellia in the Window

Occasionally you take a look at something and you see something that gives you pause.  It might be a sunset, or the particularly way that the light is casting through a window. Perhaps it is the expression on someone’s face.  This was one of those moments.  I knew exactly as soon as I set up to paint this what I wanted the painting to look like.  

This painting was entirely about getting the first impression in my head to paper.
What caught my eye was the cool light that washed across the entire image, the strong sillouette from the back-lit leaves, and the blast of color for the camellia.
