Even though I worked on this streetscape over several days, I had a hard time with the green for some reason. The color would not lay evenly and even slicked up and separated some yellow out. I don’t think I ever used this particular color so thickly and I am not sure I like the way it performed. The color is interesting though and makes quite a statement. Looking at it after some days remove, I think I need to rework the area at the left corner, under the overhang. It looks slightly wonky to me and I think a small adjustment with the pen will fix it. I still like all of the vivid colors that the store owners have chosen.
Now, here are two older pieces for the challenge. I looked at quite a few of my older works and I have used far more of them in the early days than I thought I did. I selected several and looked back to see if I had published them before and unfortunately I have used most of what I had. Still, here are two more.
I saw Mr. Lion at a zoo and I took the photo for the creamery while I was at a family wedding in northern California. The creamery photo is under glass already so the colors are not precisely true.
