It’s raining outside, just started! We are dying for rain here in Austin (well, all of Texas really). Today’s painting is an attempt to work from my sketchbook again. So, translating a pen sketch to paint is challenging (painting volume vs. line to define volume), but I think this is kind of working. I like the lack of detail but you are still able to tell what is going on. After finishing the cellist on the left the composition was screaming, I stink, so I tried to paint like i was sketching with a pen. It sort works.
