We all know that color affects mood but have you considered using that notion in a painting?
Instead of painting what you see in a photograph, try some other colors instead.
For instance, in the above painting of The Old Shed, the original photo had some beautiful green lush grass and foliage around it.
Instead, I painted it with ochres and browns.
Now the painting has a feeling that it has been a long summer and the end is near.
