Summer Art 2

I painted this piece en plein air at the chateau during the afternoon. The light was very strong, creating many shadows. Also, there is contrast in this painting between the darks and lights on the chairs. The background is very simple, drawing the viewers eye to the chairs, the focal point. There are negative spaces in between the wood, arms, and legs of the chair, creating more visual interest.
