Painting Blind

"Down the Street"
6x6  Oil on Panel
This was a demo for one of my students.  Trying to show how to simplify a complicated scene.  I got the bare essentials down and then she took the photo with her & leaving a painting unfinished drives me crazy.  So painting without reference photo & a scene I wasn't familiar with, I dove in.  Painting blind is an understatement.  I certainly challenged me in new ways...can't say that I didn't kinda like it.  I'm just grateful to have a little time back at the easel.  Happy day!

P.S. Sorry, not the greatest photo.
