I've never been a "reality painter". I would rather paint things as I think they should be. No homelessness. No hunger. Equality. No ugly strip malls! No historic buildings torn down in order to have a bigger parking lot.
This past week I concentrated on putting a first layer of color on everything. Buildings will change color, some may change shape. I needed to have everything somewhat solid so I could see what I was dealing with. Oh, and I took the bridge out, I'm going with docks instead. This phase of the painting I get to have a lot of fun mixing colors. Every phase is fun.
