The Pink One on Caroline Street

Well, I am throwing this one out there as it's my 3rd oil attempt. Really not sure how I feel about this, so I would love any constructive advice you'd like to offer! This house really is pink, so shadowing it wasn't the easiest for me. There was a golden glow highlighting it just so that made me want to capture it.  If you are familiar with Shelby Keefe's work, you'll know she does a lot of urban type scenes like this and I am in love with how she handles the paint, one day I hope to grow up to be her!  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.
