Last week we painted again in downtown Petaluma on Water Street. Since it was a windy day, I tucked in close to a building and picked one scene which I worked on for two hours and then scraped when I got home. No effort would save it.....it already was full of effort.
Next we had 30 minutes to do a quick study. So I looked down the street, close to the buildings, and found lots of lampposts. So I just tried to see shapes...........nothing but shapes. And that tree was placed in an unusual position in my composition, but then, why not. Just go for it. Learn. Do. Enjoy the process.
