No rain today, so we painted outside all day starting with these skyscrapers.
This was the toughest subject for me. Give me the broken windows of the warehouses in the Dogpatch, or the madness of Chinatown and I’m at home. But straight-lined orderly buildings are hard to paint! Still, it was great to try so many new and different studies, even if they didn’t go far. Here they are, all of them:
I could’ve gone somewhere with this one but I gave up on it too soon…
And the trouble with doing that, just dumping one study without figuring exactly what went wrong and moving to another, is that you end up with the same problems all over again. Brighter colors, same issues.
That afternoon we painted in Chinatown. Again, two studies for the exact same spot. I did study #1, thought it was too fussy and jumped into study #2…
And that was Day 2.
Day 1 is here, and our final day is coming up next.
