Cityscape Challenge

Saturday, March 10, 2012
Enjoyed participating in the cityscape challenge by Terry Miura. I simplified this painting by staying under 45 minutes to restrict the amount of details. Using a limited palette with a few warm and cool colors, I worked from large to small shapes. Terry's pointers of keeping the cars in two values to start with and adding another one later if needed and consolidating similar values were beneficial in simplifying the scene.
