#5, Ponce doorway
On the windward side of Puerto Rico, a few miles inland, is the old Colonial town of Ponce. On an afternoon stroll I photographed several interesting doors - reminding very much of New Orleans. This is one of them. I wanted to indicate the play of shadows in the recesses from the bright sun light. Regretably, I didn't pay attention to the paint I was using (being more intent on the color!!) and used D-R Quin. red which did not stay where I put it!! It bled into my shadows, which I intended to be clear. Almost threw it away and then remembered that we are painting for quantity and not quality! So here it is! And I certainly learned a few lessons with this one!!
