Road at the Tail of the Rocks

Painted for Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout challenge
on the Isle of Man. I chose this scene because of the
many interesting componants. This is a beachfront cottage,
built of thick walls, leaning chimneys, and a thatched roof,
that is literally tied down with rope and weighted down with rocks (windy?).
These elements and the brightly painted red doors and windows,
along with the red canoes made me think this needed
to be painted in a whimsical fashion.

  1. Hi Jean,

    I love the whimsical feeling of this piece, as well as the color scheme. The mountains remind me of Cezanne. Well done!
