Our Living Room
After running into the interior paintings of British painter, Sue Ryder, I was inspired to paint this view with Louie, our cat, lying curled up on the floor. I wanted to not only convey the facts but also make a pleasing picture. Domestic interiors offer many possibilities to develop an atmospheric picture.
It takes many attempts, at least for me, to develop an approach to a subject. I have talked to Sue several times and she warns me against trying to paint the entire room rather than just a corner or feature. Multiple light sources through lamplight add to the drama.
