limited palette

Last week Sarah brought in some vegetables to paint because it was too rainy outside.Those of you who know Sarah will appreciate that it was pouring otherwise she would have been outside. I had a few little 4" x 5" canvases around so I did a limited palette exercise. The first painting is with an unlimited palette. The middle is phalo blue, cadmuim red light, yellow ochre, black and white. The painting on the left is burnt sienna, phalo green, yellow ochre, black and white. The last painting really demanded attention to value.

New images for the signal boxes


 Here are 8 more signal box studies. I submittedthe last ones then found out that the design team wanted an aquatic theme. I didn't get the email-rgggggh. So these are my substitutes. First and The Promenade is a great address. Lots of improvements going on with a new bike station and highly designed bus stops so it's worth the effort to fit in.

First Street and The Promenade, Long Beach


I finished my box at 15th Street and Alamitos last week and immediately had to submit 8 more paintings for the two boxes at 1st Street and the Promenade.  I finished this afternoon. Phew. Maybe I'll get back to daily painting while I'm waiting for the paperwork to go through.
