"Striped Shadows"

Striped Shadows
7 x 7"
Oil on gessoed board

  Here is my entry for this week's "The Stripe Challenge" --by Carol Marine. I went to the local park one day, it was hot hot hot day at noon, the benches on the pier are made by striped metal, no one wants to get grilled sitting on it, so I get chance to take a picture of it. The bench and the balustrades and their shadows made a great composition. To get the perspective right is quite a challenge -- I kept telling myself "don't get lost in the stripes" when I was painting the shadows. Hope you enjoy the painting.


  1. A very nice interpretation, Joanna!
