I’ve been trying to take photographs of a piece as I work on it. Trouble is, I work very quickly and wet-in-wet, usually without a pause. So it’s easy to forget to stop and take a photograph. Still, I managed to get a few in-between shots this week. They’re really useful to me, to look at and see what I did, and often, when I should have stopped. I thought I’d share these process shots.
This is the front of the newly restored Los Gatos Theater. Originally the Strand Theater, it burnt down in a fire in 1929 and was rebuilt as the art deco Los Gatos Theater.
