Sunset on Caroline St.

I took this one out of the "stacks," I felt like I could give it a little boost. So I emphasized the light and shadow on the main pink house and mixed greys for the other areas, this is something I've been attempting since reading about Charles Sovek and it has helped me a lot with color representation in that the greys help the main area to shine. Please let me know your thoughts, this is a 12 x 16 oil on canvas.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
