Fading light

To celebrate the last day of classes (!) I found a bit of time to do some car sketching today. I know my students probably find more fun ways to mark the occasion but this was my reward. With yesterday’s fresh snow and only a bit of daylight left, I drove not too far and parked to catch the fading shadows. At just the right time a couple walked by with a baby carriage and a Great Dane. I couldn’t capture them fast enough so I added in the man and a smaller dog because it was beyond me to paint a Great Dane from memory.

    I like the flat-plane approach to this one. Although, I can’t figure out why you were so concerned with the breed of dog, when you just painted the dog as a dark blob… could have easily been a man walking his pet sheep. Anyway, the whole thing works really well. Nice to see all the snow again.

    You never cease to amaze me. How you manage to take such a simple scene and create a dynamic composition rendered in s harmonious palette evoking the essence of a late afternoon in December. Simply wonderful!
