City Shapes 2

Here's the second in the series of City Shapes. It actually might be a challenge to do a series of the cities that I've visited.
It was also a good excercise to learn about balancing shapes and colours.

City Shapes I

Over a year ago, I sketched a couple of cityscapes when I was in Vancouver. They were the first little paintings I did. I dug them out on the weekend and decided to repaint them. I left most of the composition but simplified the buildings into shapes and colours .
For some reason the other image won't upload to my blog so I'll try again tomorrow.

Evening Stroll

This is the same path as "Evening Jog" (see April 10), the grass is now long and golden.

It's nice to have an extra day off for painting. I was reading Julia Cameron's book "Vein of Gold" this morning, she's talks about the importance of walking each day. "Walking, with it's constant inflow of new images, gives us new thoughts that nourish us."
