Morning Bakery Stop
In the downtown area of Davis is the Village Bakery. It is next to the train station. They turn out wonderful bread and pizza. The aroma of baking bread torments as I stood across the street painting this scene. Customers came and went during the early morning. There was plenty of parking. Students were up at 8AM but otherwise, things were quiet. The train kept unloading waves of people who appeared late for whatever they were headed to. I did a quick sketch and determined my values. Then, when I had worked out all of the issues, the painting was a snap. As I was finishing I had plenty of people stopping to chat. One even offered to buy me a cup of coffee.
