Yesterday class painted at a park in Petaluma that had views of downtown, a row of old Victorians, residential streets, cityscapes as in the above photo of an old grain elevator and building from a feel mill.Not to mention the glorious fall colors seen in the trees. What a wonderful variety of paintings emerged.
This is what emerged for me. I got there early and spent some time drawing the scene, looking at angles, deciding what to include or leave out. Then I did a thumbnail or two of notan deciding on my light and dark pattern. Making this array of neutrals was the next part of the morning. Who knew? Warm and cool, lighter and darker.........
