January 22nd - urban abstract
Another plein air that I always liked but you can't hold onto them forever. This one again ultimately got turned upside down. And I found myself having to counter the curves. Going with them just did not work.
This again was about texture. I scraped and drew with pencil, sanded and painted and used a palette knife too. Anything to add life and energy. It felt like a battle sometimes. It took many passes.
