Trolley Car in Waxahachie, Texas, May 31, 2010

Coffee House Trolley, Waxahachie, Texas

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.
