Villars - portrait of a house

villars - portrait of a house (oil on wood 23cm x 23 cm) David Atkinson

I made this painting at the end of the summer.  I liked the way little house, and those next to it made an irregular grid.  That made it easy to think of the painting as an abstraction - to forget that it is a house and see it as series of colour shapes.  It is a feeling, or way of looking, that is much more difficult to achieve when painting something with less apparent structure, like a landscape.
