I went to work on this vintage trolley car parked illegally on Main Street outside Zula’s Coffee House in downtown Waxahachie. The sun grew hotter and the humidity worsened. Consequently I have little to say about this one. The quality of light was such that I had trouble separating the trolley from the building behind it. Both were in the same value range, and I just couldn’t seem to fake it by inventing shadows and such. I usually stay pretty true to what my eye can see. At any rate, I guess it’s better to have a watercolor than not to have one. It’s my sixth watercolor now in four days. I feel like a bricklayer, I’m so tired as I type this. The heat, humidity and constant watercoloring and daily drives to and from Waxahachie are beginning to wear me down. I hope I’ll find some stamina and continue pushing these out (but I would like for them to improve!).
Nevertheless, I do indeed look forward to tomorrow’s plein air adventure. Unfortunately, I have to go to school first.
