A SKETCHY MOTEL
Painted yesterday at a sketchy spot in the next town. This motel has the old signage that attracted me. When I set up I realized this was the run down part of town. A 'good morning' to a passerby is more or less a challenge. Maybe they are fighting a hangover or a pulsating eyeball, but in general, they nobody was pleasant. The motel had steel doors on the units which were occupied. At times it takes diplomacy doing plein aire painting. The painting was done wet on wet and when dried, I added some dry brush strokes. The paper curled up on me, so I will have to rewet and flatten it out.
