Tuesday!

Today I joined some other painters in Multnomah Village.  I did this color study, looking down the block. I especially like the big red sign at "Renners". It started out gray today... but then it got (and stayed) super-sunny. For more photos....go HERE.

Oooh, I love how yours turned out Celeste! It was so much fun going out with a bunch of artists to enjoy the day. Wishing I could have stuck around longer for the after painting enjoyment.

J'aime cette peinture prise sur le vif. La lumière qui l'inonde est magnifique.

This is just such a great urban scene, Celeste! It reminds me of a day in the life of...

You've got some awesome texture in this one too and it serves to just blur the edges beautifully.

Another wonderful and expressive painting. Love the way you capture the mood of the day. Sunny side - shadow side makes for a dynamic design. The red is perfect!
