Yesterday, I spent a great deal of the day at the easel. I love paintings of interiors, and have wanted to attempt to paint the large living room, or 'le grande salon' that was part of Napoleon's apartment in the Louvre.
I love the excess of ornament, and wanted to try to capture it with a minimum of real painted detail. I also love the golds and reds, which I was not sure I could capture, but I am pretty happy with the color. I'm not sure that the painting is done-for-good, but it is done-for-now, at any rate. I will let it dry, then will reassess.
It is 11x14" in oil on canvas. It will be a hard one to frame, as all the gold will probably be a challenge! But I did enjoy the attempt, at any rate!
