Father’s Day

Painted in the city this morning. Another favorite spot that I paint a lot. There’s so much going on behind these houses. It’s a lot of information, and every time I paint there it’s a lesson to reduce what I’m seeing to shapes of color. Like a puzzle, when all the pieces fall into place it makes a picture.

In the evening I went back to my favorite spot on the river for some more exercise in atmospheric perspective. Slowed way down. This painting has a lot of black in it. The clouds didn’t cooperate so I didn’t finish the sky. I’ll finish it off another day.

Not a bad place to sit for two hours.
