Today was an extraordinarily sunny day, so why is there a rainy scene on my easel? I can't tell you... except I had it started and I was partially inspired by watching Craig Srebnik's monochromatic demonstration earlier today (at OSA). When you limit color you can better concentrate on strong shapes and values. I'm not finished with this. I'll work on it more later.
Srebnik is so organized and neat. He never slops paint...still they brought out an unecessary tarp for him to stand on.
