She’d have plenty of photos of this view, so realism wasn’t her goal. She felt angry, rebellious, and on edge. If she were at home, she’d go do something unexpected and daring. But she wasn’t at home, so she’d pour that mood into this painting.
Satisfied with the space and outlines, she turned to color decisions. Thinking only in terms of the light or dark value of the shapes, she chose light or dark acrylic paint colors that she liked together. She needed to work quickly before nightfall.
