Starting Another Street Scene

oil painting san miguel de allende WIP c

almost have the placement of shapes
although two figures on the right are temporarily missing
since i want to move the corner wall
so that it does not conflict with the street light

getting a sense of color
but not on track with value
(shh… don’t tell…)
need to go in and get the buildings darker
and the road too
but first i want to revisit what i call
line convergence – where things meet
placement – in other words
why i paint instead of settling for snapshots
(snapshots being different than photography)

the initial “is this going to work” stage
answer: yes.. um.. eventually
