Lost and Found

11″x11″ oil
I called this one “Lost and Found” because it is another resurrected painting from my box of failures. I do think that failures or wipe-outs are good educational tools but it is also fun when I can salvage them. I originally painted this plein air but it didn’t have any punch which was so disappointing because it was such a lovely place to paint on a cool, but sunny day. This has a nice play of tight and loose which is nice. I am not very good at painting architectural features accurately and also with a fresh looseness mainly because I can’t draw a straight line. Have you ever heard that phrase?
