Rutledge Avenue

7" x 5" oil on canvas panel

You can view and purchase this painting here.

Third entry for this month's Virtual Paintout location of Charleston. This house is surrounded by crepe myrtles and palms, and with the fenced yard and the shadows it looks kind of mysterious - I can see it perfectly as the setting in a 1940s film noir, something with Lauren Bacall and Sydney Greenstreet.

I used the black gesso for the ground, and I think that adds to the mystery.
