Notan Challenge

Acrylic on Panel - 5 x 7 inches - Click Here to Bid

This weeks Daily Paintworks Challenge was the Notan Challenge. You can read all about it there.
We were assigned to do a sketch first to unite the darks into a harmonious patter, and then do a painting based on that drawing.

This is a funky little building in my neighborhood, and I've painted it before, but not from this photo.
For some reason, I sketched in the tree on the left, but left it out of the painting. I was kinda rushed. I set the timer for 20 minutes on this one, but went over by about 5 minutes.

You really captured a sense of space here with only a few brushstrokes. I love the bread tone palette and the warmth of the overall piece.
