4″x6″, painted 7/30/2010 on the bridge to the glass museum. This was my second painting today and I felt a bit rushed. I really love the scene and the lovely glass tower of sea foam forms but the lighting was still a bit gray from the early morning fog and I just couldn’t lift the scene out of that monochromatic look. I think I need to paint it again when the sun is out.
4″x6″, painted 7/30/2010 at the University of Washington, Tacoma. This old railroad crossing is just a part of the campus now. I’m fairly happy with the painting as it was my first painting of the day and it was quite a bit foggy at the time. I’m pleased that the final product turned out nice and vibrant, though I think I could have pushed the trees in the back ground back a bit more with a wash of prussian blue.
4″x6″, Painted 7/29/2010. I couldn’t leave the house today as my wife had the car and I needed to take care of my daughter. I snuck this painting in while she was napping. This is the view from our deck, down the side yard towards the front of the house. We continue to be blessed by the gardening skills of the previous owner of the house and all of the beautiful flowers she planted.
7″x10″, painted 7/26/2010. I really liked the structure of this scene with the multiple signs and the great contrast in colors between all of the blues and the orange of the signs. I think the awning turned out better in me warm-up painting (#15) than it did here, but I might still touch that up. Overall, it was a good day of painting.
