Jefferson Memorial at Night

Night scene of the Jefferson Memorial, Washington, DC.
This painting was a real challenge. Night tends to flatten colors. The challenge is when you have several light sources...inside, outside, and around. I'm not sure if I should post the procedure I did for this painting—it was a struggle. I tend to feel my way through a painting.

Where did the time go?

Tom Pohlman from DSFSF has reminded me that the deadline is approaching for the Jefferson Memorial at night painting. So far I have a color scheme, shown here, and the drawing is being put on watercolor paper...plenty of time unless things don't work out as planned. Thanks Tom
I think I might document my steps in painting it as I did with the previous portrait...stay tuned.

Happy New Year

A portrait for DSFDF. It's suppose to be anonymous, but I thought I knew who it is. This will be posted by Saturday Dec 3rd... if I don't mess it up.
So far it has been several days in the painting stage. I just have to pull it all together.
Note my messy work space. 2009 resolution is to get better organized. Ha!
I thought I knew who I was painting—nope, I really don't know now.
