VSW: Tuileries, Paris

Tuileries, from an image
by Demi Kalfa for
Virtual Sketchwalk.

Robert Oster’s Green at
is new to me,
on sale at Vanness in
Grandpa’s Basement
*I shouldn’t tell you about Grandpa’s basement
because, more for me.*

It has rich undertones of
black and also touches of
warm yellow, though it is hard
to see in the washes above.

I have been told that the way an artist crops an image changes the way the piece feels.
Maybe that is why I like playing with cropping after the fact…
Included in this cropping is the banner above (if you can see it on your phones.)
But I’m not sure about this.  I think it is line or brush stroke and color.

What say you?

*meanwhile, these french words are driving my dyslexia insane…
i double check spelling and still! u,e,i,l… i mix hem up when writing!*

    Your work inspires me. Thank you!

    I am a recovering photojournalist. Cropping often makes or breaks a photograph. I can see it can be also true for a rendering, a drawing or a painting.

    I think it does change the mood. I think it’s very personal, both for the artist and the onlooker. I do prefer the open edges in the first share.
