Painting a Derelict Structure in Eureka Springs, June 14, 2010

Derelict Structure below Historic Eureka Springs, Arkansas

After a full day of painting, one of my Eureka Springs students, Sandy Barksdale, still had energy left for another plein air watercolor.  We found this fascinating string of buildings near the old railroad depot below the historic Eureka Springs business district.  The light was fading fast, and I had to work quickly.  I was fascinated with the shadows playing about the sagging roof, porch, and steps attached to this derelict structure.

    Eureka Springs or Waxahachie (as your description says)? Nice, either way.
