A Davis Alley
Spring was in the air this morning. Instead of class, I decided to do some plein air painting. I remember seeing all of these alleys in Davis back in the late fall. I did some painting of them at the time but wanted to return. After finding all of the wonderful alleys in my town in Mexico there had to be something just as good her in my little patch of Davis. The light was strong and cast long shadows. Everything pretty much stayed in place while I sketched and did my painting. This was an improvement over my plein air work in Mexico where everything was in motion. I limited my palate and used a wide tonal scale to accent the alley. I like it.
