Anvil Grille

August 6, 2018

Anvil Grille – Plein Air – Oil on Linen Panel – 12″ x 16″

Although on my short list of designs to tackle at this plein air event, I was on my way to another spot when I was about to pass by this location. I noticed two important factors. First, a very convenient and rarely available parking space was vacant. Second, the light and shadows were interesting.

I immediately altered my schedule, stopped the car and quickly set to paint this scene. The changes that occurred during my time painting were challenging. Hard to stick to your initial design when the shadows constantly evolve offering a myriad of possibilities and the shops and venues are coming to life before the late morning shoppers and diners start to arrive. At a very vulnerable and opportune time, a couple stopped to peruse the menu posted at the restaurant. Quickly slapped the figures in place and finished the painting.
