sunlit porch with white bench and flowers oil painting PJ Cook.

“Sunlit Porch”, oil on gesso panel, ©2015 PJ Cook.

The bright sunlight on one end of the bench and flower window box is what I wanted to paint. The flowers were so bright against the white bench they just popped! The dark shadows helped to accentuate the sunlit areas. This traditional wood porch was beautiful and I wanted to paint that white bench.  I did a pencil sketch first and a quick value study then took photos for reference. Painted in alla prima style or in one sitting was a challenge with the wet paint and the white bench details. Painting with as few strokes as possible and with clean paint is important when painting in alla prima style.
