This plein air painting was done at the China Pavilion at Epcot. I had all but the last few details done on site and then finished it in the studio. The challenge on this one was all the colorful ornamentation and details on the structure. Therefore, this was a great exercise in indication and not getting caught up on details. The paper on this one is one of my favorites, Twinrocker.
The day I painted this I was getting hungry I always keep a protein bar or some nuts in my bag for just such an occasion. I had a bowl of almonds with me that day and as soon as I took the lid off of them, I had a buddy! He was not shy in the least, as you can tell by these photos.
