I used a lot of the techniques learned in the Terry Muira workshop, but this time I toned the canvas with a mix of yellow ochre and a bit of transparent oxide red. I also did a relatively careful drawing of the building to establish the area I wanted to capture and to establish the perspective as carefully as I could. Time passed very quickly and the sun light on the building changed faster than I could paint. I tried to keep from "chasing the light", but it was a challenge.
This quick little sketch worked well in some places and fell flat in others but it was fun. I'll return again when I have a bit more time.
