I painted a mysterious light on Grinnell Street yesterday.
I drew in the lines on a page primed with blue and orange.
With a big flat brush and gouache I started establishing the houses.
I painted out the truck and put in the trees.
I added the street pole and the porch.
Detail of the effect area.
The light and color were all in my head.
It was really a sunny afternoon in Rhinecliff, New York.
Here's what I was looking at. I was using the forms I saw to paint an imaginary light.
