I missed out on the NYC street scene for last month's Different Strokes assignment, so I got an early start on the next one. The challenge here is that the source photo is Black & White, so a little interpretation of values is required. I don't think I really have a lot of experience with "values" but I've done a few landscapes before.
I started with golden fall tones throughout, but then decided it didn't seem to match up well so I pushed everything in a more green, lush Spring direction. I really like painting on these slicker boards. The paint just flies onto the surface.
