I really wanted to paint a fun old yellow couch for a painting a day chellenge. This is an oil painting that is painted on wood panel. I started out with a pencil sketch directly on the panel. How I came up with the image- is that I use a series of images and piece them all together to create one image! This way I can get exactly everything that I want in the picture. :)
I wanted to have the light streaming through the windows and do an outside in kind of effect.
