My painting continues on the Pitigliano Street scene. Today, I worked on the left buildings and the iron lamp. I didn't make the paint too heavy on this side so that it allows the eye to skip down the street and not get caught on the way. I added shadows and highlights to the figures and kept the outlines soft.
One of the many things I learned at Johanna Spink's demonstration was to look at your painting with a mirror. She paints portraits and finds this to be very helpful when evaluating her sketch. This technique will really make those small errors in perspective stand out and allow me to fine tune any small problems.
