Here is the progression of my day in class yesterday. The bottom photo is the original where you can see my notan and the strong lines of the structure. Done well but boring.
The middle photo is how I attempted to destroy boring by color. I got a very tropical feeling while using lots of color. Value mattered, not which color. And I really brought out the window that attracted me in the first place.
The top photo is number three and the most successful one. It is the most sunlit which was an important element and very difficult to capture. It has the strongest lines, the least effort. It just happened. Trial and error pays great dividends.
And once again a great painting experience.
