Block on Block

6"x4" oil on gessoed door skin. At first glance, this backlit set up offered only two values, that of the shadow and light sides. They formed two interesting shapes that I used to initially build this painting. Then I backed off, and really looked at these simple blocks and noticed all the subtle value changes and reflected light. These subtleties bring a painting to life.
