Rainy Day In The City

oil 6x12

This is another painting done for the painting challenge from artist Karin Jurick's blog different strokes for different folks.
This challenge we were given an upside down photo to work with. We had to leave it that way while doing our painting. It forces you to see only shapes and composition and not worry about the subject. I had not done a painting this way but have done drawings like this. I often turn my paintings around { especially portraits } and look at them in the mirror. You can really spot things you want to change by looking at the painting this way. I like always love a challange so this was a lot of fun! Try it sometime.
