10.4.11 – This City Looks Better Gray

Sometimes the only way to get out of a slump is to paint through it. Maybe I don’t need a greater purpose, except to just get better. (Thanks Carlos) So here it is:


The cardinal sin in watercolor is to use black. I only have a tube of Ivory Black for an exercise I did awhile ago, but I figured I’d break all the rules today. It started getting gray today in San Francisco, which I think is more fitting for the City anyway. The sun was great while it lasted, but everything seems to have so much more depth when its gray. I do love where I live.
