7″x10″, painted 8/4/2010. This was painted from the same spot in the fireman’s park in downtown Tacoma as watercolro #26. Instead of looking down at the freeway, I was looking up at the view west onto Commencement bay. I was standing up while I painted this instead of sitting in my usual chair and I think that the change in painting position really helped me keep this more loose.
4″x6″, painted 8/4/2010. This is the birds eye view of the Schuster Parkway and Stadium drive exit off the I705. I painted this view from the lovely little fireman’s park in downtown Tacoma. I was really drawn to this place by the geometry of the curvy roads and how they overlap one another as well as how the shadows played on them.
