Plein air painting this week was on Broadway. Looking across the main street is the Tower Theater. It is a complex of businesses but the theater is still running and its tower is the highest on Broadway. It gave rise to many 'Tower' stores along Broadway and side streets, eg Tower of Records, Tower of Books, etc.
This was a wet into wet composition done rather quickly. You can see some water stain at the top as the tape held water and it puddled out. The tower is stark white and the vegetation is well overgrown around the front. I tried mixing greens on the paper with some success. It was a wonderful day that started cold and warmed. We ate lunch right behind our painting location at Willie's.
