Suburban Mornings

Savannah Door Painting, 2019

This gouache painting was created using a doorway in Savannah, Georgia as reference. The focus of the painting was to have a dramatically cool exterior versus an intense warm interior, along with creating a narrative element within the doorway. Savannah, Georgia is supposedly the most haunted city in the United States, so I wanted to create a scene featuring a local ghost going about his day-to-day life. During my process I used reference photos I shot of the doorway and of the "ghost" with appropriate lighting.
