In progress acrylic 12x48

Unless I have a specific scene in mind, I well often start on a new canvas by selecting a color and value scheme. In this case it will be another of my "window" paintings, but I would do the same with a landscape by choosing a sky color and value. This is as for as I've gotten with this piece. The close, light values makes it a bit of a challange. I painted the background almost 2 months ago and only yesterday decided on the windows. I'll look at for awhile and trust that the rest of the painting will make itself known to me.

Bill, I love when a painting 'makes itself known.' Looks like a great start on this one!
