back lots




Two paintings from the back lot behind whole foods. It was surprisingly nice painting back there. It was so stark in places but the lines of the place were never really straight and it was a really nice place to observe light. I like the turn these took. I used only the palette knife on them and was able to keep my colors a lot cleaner and edges sharper as a result. They were painted in the morning hours, one class session each.
