I went back to the spot I was at last week in the Africa area. I had very limited time today, I didn't completely finish. I will put it up in the studio and analyze whether I will finish it or not. Some I'm compelled to bring to completion and others I essentially see as a painting exercise. As I mentioned in the last post, I tried a new paper I didn't care for so part of me doesn't want to spend any more time on this one. It is at that point where I feel like I may have overworked it. I will look at with fresh eyes another day.
I'm posting a painting I did finish in the Asia area. I also wanted to share a link to the Urban Sketchers Blog. Last week there was a meet up of different chapters all over the world to record anything related to the Chinese New Year, the year of the Rooster. Noga Grossman the head administrator for our Orlando Chapter suggested the idea as well as documenting what other artists did on the worldwide Urban Sketchers blog. If you would like to see the post you can click here. One of my paintings of the Temple of Heaven in the China Pavilion at Epcot was featured! There are other sketches from Lisbon, Yokohama, Seattle, Orlando, Melbourne, Los Angeles, Beijing, Dallas/Ft. Worth, O'ahu, and Canberra, in the article.
