The Pink Roof

8x10, oil on canvas panel
Generally, when I begin a painting, I first decide on my focal point. The focal point is usually put off center on one of the cross hairs of an imaginary tic tac toe grid. It will be a little different from the rest of the painting...perhaps sharper edges, more contrast, or brighter color spots. The focal point for this painting is the bright pink roof surrounded by cooler colors.
