Convent Gate, 12x16
Two years ago on a hot Tucson day, my friend Mic and I stood in the shade and did some studies of this beautiful scene. Getting home I used the material to do this larger piece. The other day I ran across it along with the studies and with about twenty minutes work it coalesced into this....which I like. The field studies emphasized the old cathedral tower but this version, which lets the gate and wall take over, seems to work best.
Remember to go to my blog and make comments this month for a free painting. At the end of the month I'll draw from all the comments to pick the winner. The blog is at: http://darrellanderson.blogspot.com/ Click on the word 'Comments' at the end of that days post.
