I drew this sitting out near O P Taylors on Broad which has a good view of the court house.
The tree and building were still decorated for Christmas. I love that people no longer zip the decorations into storage the day after Christmas.
A great view of the mountains as Broad Street drops off toward Asheville.
My biggest dislike about the Strathmore Mixed Media 500 journal is that it’s very difficult to make lay down flat giving a large shadow down the spine. Not very attractive in the middle of a painting!
I guess I need to flatten it on the scanner but so much easier to use the cellphone for a quick pic.
Colors used. Cerulean sky w a touch of cobalt. Red w yellow ochre for brick colors. Burnt umber and Inathrodone for shadows, roofs, truck and street. Hookers green w Inathrodone for the for tree.
Thanks for reading.
