Half baked

I think it's interesting to see works in progress. I started this painting on Thursday and plan to finish it up this week, but in the mean time, I thought I would share it at this stage anyway. Why not, right? What I find interesting for my own introspection, is to see how I worked the top portion first (I think to completion) and left the bottom sketch alone. The bottom part includes people eating at an outdoor cafe and some flowers and landscaping. I think it will be a nice juxtaposition with the structural city buildings painted above.

The reference is a photo I took on one of my walks around Boston. When I post the final painting I'll share a little more about exactly where the photo was taken.

It is always good to see things in process. Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to seeing this finished. It'll be great!

drama is my verification word. What's going on? Not very amusing!

Hi Ann - Loved your Pretty in Pink and it's so cool that you're in Dick Blick!!
I tried posting on the PKP site and it worked for me - but computers - hey - today out of the blue my messenger tells me it can't sign me it!
Blogger sometimes hiccups and doesn't let me in for half a day!
Please try again and let me know if you continue to have problems!!
Happy painting,
Judy

Oh now this is looking so cool just as it is. That said, I can't wait to see the piece finished as the close up views on the bottom against the more impersonal large buildings will look awesome!
