Palm Trees over a Parking Lot

Palm Trees over a Parking Lot

Palm Trees over a Parking Lot

I sat in my favorite parking lot towards the end of the day and sketched this scene, thinking hard about how to use color to show what I was seeing. Mort of this is done with Quinacridone Rose, Yellow Ochre, and Viridian, although I did use some other colors as well. It caught the sunny look of late afternoon, I think. Later at home I painted over the distant hills with even more yellow to make them seem more distinct than the shrubbery in the parking lot, which added to the end-of-the afternoon feel.

This is a pencil and watercolor sketch on watercolor paper.
