Little Italy

Last weekend I had an opportunity to paint out on the sidewalk of Mayfield Rd. in Little Italy during their art walk. It was a gorgeous day and a great time was had by all. Tara Siebel was nice enough to allow me to set up shop in front of her gallery at the intersection of Mayfield Rd. and Murray Hill. Here's some pics. I still have a little work to do on the painting, but I think it's a good start.

It may seem geeky to have an umbrella, but it's an absolute must if you want to paint outdoors in the sun. There is no way you can get accurate colors on your painting if the sun is blasting onto your painting surface. You'll end up taking it indoors and looking at all the transparent washes with must less light bouncing through them than if the sun is shining through them.
