Day 23 - Jerome, Idaho
I was attracted to this scene because of its intense contrasts and the dramatic composition. It is another scene I captured by travelling around in Google street view. It is the only way I can see the world right now.. but it is a satisfactory substitute for now... I guess.. ;) Anyway, as I was painting, I struggled with the mountains in the background, which were of course an important part of the picture. I scraped it off no less than two times, then decided to paint it using a palette knife. I love the way they turned out! It is a lesson I need to remember... when the painting is not going the way I want... Scrape it off! It almost always turns out better....
