Better Photos

I finished the two paintings I worked on this weekend and took better photos of them.  On this painting of the beach houses, I added some detail and finished the shadows.

I worked on this painting for about 4 hours on Saturday.  By the time I packed up to leave, the shadows had changed considerably.  I was trying to depict them as they'd been earlier in the day, but half the painting showed them as they were by late afternoon.  Today I went back and deepened the shadows on the chimney, the stairs, and the wall in the foreground, so they matched the shadow scheme of the rest of the painting.
