Bay Bridge #2
I painted this in the same spot as yesterday. I've tried painting the same photograph twice and it has never worked out( With exception to the Chicken series). Painting from life is a different story. I think I could paint from this spot a hundred times and not get bored. Painting from life allows you took take your painting in any direction you choose. Because you can see so much detail you have to choose an approach that will allow you to capture what is important to you. One day you may be inspired by color and the next day shape or shadow. Today I played it safe. I went in very light and described only one piece of the painting at a time.
