UPDATE...here's the final, final version below...I reworked a bit in my studio.
I think I like my first version below the best...but now it's too late. WHEN WILL I LEARN?!Here's the view in the real world.
This painting below was done last week at a construction site near my home. It was fun talking to the work crew. I'm sure they didn't really get the "impressionist" technique I was going for. But they were nice about it.
This next painting was also done last week, over two consecutive mornings. My family had just gone to a parade and crafts show here the weekend before, and I really wanted to paint that huge sycamore tree. So...I did. :)
