Here is a alley scene which happens to be located at the backside of the building we live in. In fact, the green dumpster butts right up against our building. The reference picture was taken in the morning hours. I recently rode my bike around the neighborhood snapping pictures for possible future reference. I intended for the dumpster to be the center of interest for this painting. This was fun as it was a break from plein air and because I haven't done many paintings in the studio or from photos in quite a while. I would like to couple both studio and plein air paintings from now on. We'll see how that goes.........
