THIS IS A FANTASTIC DEPICTION OF EDGAR POE "S GREAT SHORT STORY, YOU EXCEEDED POE HIMSELF IN HIS DARK, GOTHIC DESCRIPTION OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, YOUR USE OF DISTORTED COLORS AND SHAPED ACCENTUATES THE EFFECT

RW, this has a very creepy feeling to it and that is the whole point. Eh? Very interestingly executed too. Like a Whistler in its vague appearance.

What I like about this painting R W is the ambiguity of the subject-matter, the marks of the palette knife and the darkness (all-together they make for a fine painting) Jean :)

This is simply breathtaking, Bob !!!!!! And yes, I can see those greens and violets you're talking about in the description, I see all those superb deep ultramarine and prussian blue shades and those brilliant spots of light in cadmium yellow and red and orange and the magenta pinks ........ Love, love this painting !!!!!!! f,v

R W Goetting replied:

Thank you for your kind words Ana Maria! I am so glad those colors came through. This was fun to paint. Prussian blue is such a strange pigment, it's like black hole paint, you have to be careful or everthing disappears in it!!

This is cool. I'm a fan of Edgar Allen Poe and I read those stories as a kid too. I still watch the movies with Vincent Price. Great creepy tales. I also love those movies because they often featured creepy artwork, usually portraits in ornate frames. They often conveyed or held some dark influence.

R W Goetting replied:

Aren't those old black and whites the best?!? We are big Vincent Price fans, completely agree with you there. You are right about the artwork in those old movies too! Glad you liked this one, thank you!

Title

The Fall Of The House Of Usher

Artist

R W Goetting

Medium

Painting - Oil On Canvas

Description

I have owned a book of Edgar Allen Poe's short stories since I was a kid many moons ago. I still have it, and it is illustrated in a most amusing style. Flat color planes, graffic line drawing, dramatic use of tone..........similar to Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec. Of course, I made the mistake of reading these stories at night, and they scared the daylights out of me....especially the Tell Tale Heart...........But this painting is about the Fall of the House of Usher. This is painted over several previous efforts of various topics, giving it a rough, jagged surface that is suitable for the subject. I am not sure it translates in the photography, but there are some kinda creepy greens and violets that appear here and there............darn prussian blue......I try not to use it but............for macabre scenes...............
