Went to Bastrop today and painted this. I've lived just a short car ride from Bastrop for the last 6 years but I never went. Shame on me, it's a cute little town with lots of things to paint. Anyway, I painted this little boat rental place:
And here's a sequential of how I painted it. I didn't like how wimpy my washes were on stage 2. Also, I was under a tree, and the dappled light was throwing my camera off. Sorry for the poor photography!
In all honesty, the painting didn't turn out how I had it in my head. There are things I really don't like about it. My spouse says that it's a fine painting and that the failings are all in my head and that I should post it. So if you like my painting, you have him to thank for me posting it. :)
