Yesterday I painted this study of Main Street in New Paltz, New York.
I used casein with a limited palette of cobalt blue, yellow ochre, light red, and white. I kept the sky nearly white and flooded cool skylight across the small forms that crossed into the sky. The rest of the scene explores contrasts of warm and cool at a fairly high key.
Jeanette and I set up at standing height on the sidewalk beside our friend Garin Baker. We kept to the shadow side of the street to avoid working in the glaring sunlight.
