Diane Mannion, Arcadia Depot, 8x10" oil on linen
Drove out to Arcadia to paint with another artist early Sunday morning. We could have set our easels up in the middle of the road, it was like a ghost town. Started with a sketch of the Depot building... collected color notes and memorized light effects. Should have followed my thumbnail sketch because my composition was way off... wiped off first attempt. The finished painting above was painted later from reference, studio painting created from the mornings research.
Me painting first future wipe out!
I have a renewed respect for city painters! It's tough!
