Getting the light right on interiors is a way more subtle proposition than it is on landscapes where the ground is usually one value and temperature, as well as all the other components. but in an interior painting the lighting is more complex. the top of the bed can be in varying temperatures of light in just a two square foot area. not to mention reflected light! its bouncing all around in there and the challenge is to keep it painterly but to also be true to the light. my problem is that i'd gladly sacrifice painterly strokes to accurately portray the light. its a real tightrope to get accuracy and keep it painterly and fresh.
i like the way these came out. one "fell off the brush" the other i worked on over several days, refining and tweaking. each painting is like one of your kids if you have several... each one unique in their own way.
