Boston Maybe

After I finished the second phase of my value sketch and felt it was successful enough to post again below, I felt the need to use this positive energy. I used this energy to finish a gouache I was having a few problems with i.e., the other painting I had finished for the Virtual Paintout 'Boston' challenge this month. There are a few things I could do to it but as the paint is on quite heavily, I don't think I'll add anything to it at this late stage. I quite like it for some obscure reason, well not obscure, I like the colours and the 'hot Summer afternoon' feel, but I don't think I'll send this one in. I don't know...I'm going out and I'll decide later.

What a gorgeous street, Anne! I would have guessed a hot autumn day with that orange bit of leaves in the trees.

Darlene - thanks for the compliment! I'm still wavering...but if you think it is worth it.....! :-)

Thanks Sherry - I manipulated the original scene from Google Maps to give it more drama and oomph. Yes, a hot Autumn day indeed.

What is your hesitation? honestly....or maybe you just want to make a dramatic last minute entrance? :D

Charlotte - I don't know what stops me with this one. Dramatic entrance...don't put ideas in my sore head. LOL> :-))

I hope you sent it in. It's beautiful.

Mary - thanks for your compliment. I didn't send it in as I had too many criticisms in the end. Also lost the Google Map link so I guess it wasn't meant to go elsewhere!!! :-)
