My painting, The Corner Store is acrylic on canvas (20.4 by 25.5 cm, 8 by 10 inches). I painted with loose expressive brush strokes and little detail. This is similar to art by the impressionists, i.e. Monet. The painting is a dominant light value (gray scale); there is some middle tone and less dark value. The painting has a dominant warm temperature. The focal point is the man with the black hat. There are several ways into the painting and towards my focal point, i.e. the path, the awning, the boxes. I have used all colors twice but my color trail is the yellow hue. I have also repeated the triangular shape; this repetition helps move viewers around the painting. There is a triangular shape at the front right canvas. There are 3 triangular shapes at the top; the yellow section of the awning, the tree and the light blue sky shape.
