Kyoto Gateway

Acrylic on Panel - 5 x 7 inches - Sold

The latest Daily Paintworks Challenge was issued Sunday, and I had completed mine by Monday night. I've got the whole week to slack off now. I mean paint other things. Ahem.

This week's challenge is "the Color of the Year" based on Pantone's choice of Tangerine Tango. I was a little off, because the swatch below is a little off, and my other monitor is way off for reds and oranges. In any case, I knew I had this photo from my last trip to Japan, and I was about to prime some panels with a wash or orange anyway. I tried to let the orange show through in spots, but except for the arch itself, I compulsively filled in every other spot.
