Paintings, arty activities, and musings by Christy Lemp

Working on a scene for my son in Germany. We're going to visit next month where he's teaching; this is a walkway next to his school building.
this was looking too "stiff" so I decided to try again. It was started with a pencil drawing.
here I outlined with a brush and lightly tinted water, and used a lighter, patient touch with fresh color.
I'm liking the colors much better-just needs some more depth and details. But there are things about the first one I like more, like the figure and shadows. You just cannot paint the same way each time! I could paint this 3 more times and none would look alike. I would probably do this once more, driving myself crazy, but we're going to visit soon and I have more scenes to paint!
