Swiss Cabin

Acrylic on 9x12 canvas sheet
Available through DPW gallery/auction

Previously done in September 2010 for a challenge on A Day Not Wasted blog, although I can not find that it was previously posted on my blog. The original photo was a much wider shot, complete with the mountains in the background. But I was fascinated by the building - it's shape & lines - so I chose to crop in close and make a portrait shot. I also used the walkway, and the fencing along it's edges, to try & pull the viewers eye in. Doesn't it make you wonder what is inside?

It is a beautiful job, I love the angle you chose to work on, in spite of being a blind corner, I see the the mountain back drop with the trees.. it has given a lovely depth to the scene.

Hai Nan! Wonderful composition. The color of the mountain, the road and the cabin, excellent. Very nice!

Sigh...chalets...mountains and green and natural siding...All come together in a beautiful piece and would be a place I could oh so happily take up residence!

Thank you padmaja, I liked the angle also. I think it made the chalet the focal point.

Thanks renate. Composition is always something that I spend a great deal of time deciding on.

Thanks Sherry - I agree with you on all the pieces coming together. And I could very easily live in such a dwelling also.
