This one started off as a plein air painting, but it needed some work in the studio. The theme developed on location as more and more people seemed to arrive at the house ahead. A party? maybe. But it certainly was fun to paint it.
I needed to get back to the studio to check my angles and my perspective and also to think through the additional design issues that seem to be missing or inadequate in many outdoor works.
I still wonder what was going on at the house!
