|King and Queen (in progress); 22" x 25"|
I was initially attracted to the brick, and how to paint that warm glow of the sun on the side of the building. With the format almost square (I can't stand working on a true 'square'), my vantage point is looking severely down towards the street. The building on the corner is slightly right of center and has become an exercise in 2 point perspective. The light for the painting has proved quite difficult, because the 2 planes of the building (the one in sun and the other in shadow) is only there for a small window during the morning. If I get there by 9am, I have until about 10-10:30 until that left side moves out of shadow. Sometimes things like this can keep me nimble with the painting, working under a time constraint or specific weather condition.
