Painting 24!!

"Got the Spirit in Me"
 9x12 oil on canvas  Framed - black floater frame  $300

 I decided to keep with the white building theme. This church has such cool shapes.
This composition is pretty simple. I began by blocking in the sun and shadow.
 Loosely building in the shapes, still thinking about value and temperature.  I love the way reflected light warms up areas in a cool shadow!
Yesterday I had a hard time dealing with the foliage in the foreground, so today, I'm really going to try not to let the unimportant  parts of the painting get in the way.

Starting to pull the composition together.

Once I had the bulk of the work completed, I started having fun with texture and the colors in the shadows.

Until tomorrow!
