Bayfront Gardens


Oil over Acrylic by Janal Koenig
⏤ 14 in x 17 in, Framed

““Bayfront Gardens” painted on the Bayfront Marin House property during the Saint Augustine Plein Air 20222. A beautiful location with interesting architecture, cozy nooks and beautiful gardens. An impressionistic piece, color variations portraying the changing light and windy movement through the day. Choosing a challenging composition, architecture is not my strong suit. In this case the stairway leads the eye into the center. Starting with a charcoal sketch and a colorful layer in acrylic and let it completely dry in the hot sun. It was 87 I believe and the hottest day of the week. The oil layering added a thick texture, notice the leaves on the bird of paradise plant, some thick enough to cast a shadow. The deep porch with wall lanterns on through most of the day kept my interest peeked and a detail I wanted to paint and yet keep it recessed. Do you feel the warmth of the day?”
