I used the medium of oil paint to create this painting. The painting is of the breakfast room at the chateau where I stayed this summer while in France. The shadows on the table create high contrast between darks and lights in the painting. The focal point of the painting is the chairs and scene outside. Emphasis is put on the scene outside of the doors. The less intense colors in room draw the viewers' eyes to the more vibrant, intense colors of the scene outside. The repeated diagonal lines of the table and chairs create movement and drama in the painting.
