18x24" pastel on Dark Gray Canson
What caught my eye this week when out with my plein air group, was the bright white building against the brilliant sky. The blue was incredibly rich. I have learned a great lesson about brilliance and light while working on this piece.
I am considering going back out tomorrow morning (Sunday), when the streets are empty and will attempt to capture what I initially saw in this view. I had to pack up and run, as I received an emergency call. Such is my life lately, but I am learning to grab and go. It was hot anyways. Sitting on the concrete steps, with no where to move, as everyone as everyone had grabbed a patch of shade.
I am posting this now, just in case I get the urge to sleep in tomorrow. Forgive me for the lousy photo. It too was rushed. I am beginning to love the method to this madness.
