I chose this piece because I loved the antique-look of it. The quality of the actual picture had an certain magic about it, and I could tell that many stories had come from this room. I loved the light coming in from the window and the effect it had on the colors of the chairs and furniture in the room. The light brought out the different reds, oranges, and yellows that make up the wood, and not simply brown. It also brought out various colors in the walls, chandelier, and the plant. The color scheme was complimentary, blue and orange working very well together. This piece, though difficult, was fun to paint.
