I was drawn to this piece by the simplicity of it. To me, it told a story, and one that I wanted to paint. The chair is old and rusty, and looks like it has weathered many storms. The wood in the railings looks as if it has seen better days. The composition of this piece was so simple, but it wasn’t boring. The color scheme was appropriate- red and green. The green in the trees contrasted with the reds and purples in the chair, and the wood has a reddish tint to it. The lights and darks filtering in through the trees creates many layers in the woods, generating a sense of depth.
