Enter at Will

"Enter At Will" 6"x8" oil
I've started investigating a new series of plein air paintings which revolves around small openings into ??? I guess it's rather voyeuristic. One of my primary problems has been how to compose these close-up passages. I hope my shadows on the foreground help create the illusion of a flat plan/ground, leading to the door.

Hi Susan,

I too love this. Wonderful softness. There's definitely something intriguing about paintings of doors. Looking forward to seeing more in this series.
