“Vacancy”

The inspiration for “Vacancy” was the total lack of color on this Victorian. It was painted a bright white and “vacant” of color. The exciting thing about the lack of color is that all the architectural details could clearly be noted due to light and shadow. The sky was really blue that day and the house just popped out when looking up at it. I worked from a photograph and interpreted the shadow and light with color.
