This painting is the rear view of the same Contemporary House Portrait I posted earlier this summer. My goal was to make the viewer feel as if they were standing on the far edge of the property. Doing this extensive backyard was a real challenge. I used multiple views of the yard and combined them into a seamless whole. There is complicated decking on the house, a gazebo, garden ornaments and a pond with a fountain. I put a limited number of the flowering plants in bloom so as to not overwhelm the landscaping. The piece is painted in acrylics on a smooth surface 24″ X 12″ clay-board. Also see my painting of the front view of this home in the post dated 07/27/2015.
