This is quite a change from the palm trees and waterways of Florida, but I wanted to hold on to the holiday spirit a bit longer. This is April Lake, about 8" x 6" and a mix of WC and pastels. It's the view from my bedroom window.
I set up a WC station on the bar in my lower level and rather than paint some trumped up still life, I painted what was in front of me, the lower level seating area. Interiors is 8" x 6" and very static and geometric. I wasn't satisfied, so I painted the scene again.
This time I laid down dribbles and puddles, let them dry thoroughly and then went in with a gray pencil to add some structure. The structure made me feel better about my lack of skill with WC. I added enough dribbles and dabs to satisfy my sense of balance and called Interiors #2 a day. My holiday with WC is over. Monday, back to the easel and the very seriious Venetian Technique in oils.
