Monday Afternoon at the Depot
We have such glorious weather for painting. I was at my favorite site, the Davis Depot, for some plein air painting. It was quieter than in the morning. Major train traffic occurs mornings and late afternoon from my experience. The southwestern architecture of this building appeals to me and by catching it at different times, the shadow and shading change. This creates a new scene for my painting of a familiar landmark in Davis California. I can make the composition just the way I want it by moving something or leaving it out. Everyone still knows where the place is from the painting.
