Painting #1 - Evening in Paris
I am so excited to begin this challenge! This first painting is from one of the many photos taken on a trip to Paris. Rue St. Dominique is the wonderful street where we stayed. I have never painted a night scene, so tried it yesterday, and plan to try more of them. My night photos were too dark for any detail, so I used a day time photo I took (and combined details from several photos) and changed my palette to try to get a night effect. I also tried to keep it light enough to keep in some of the details. This is my first night painting, so I thought it was a good place to start my 100 paintings challenge.
