Gallery i fine art in Cannery row, Monterey on Saturday afternoon.
I'd painted at the gallery before, in the front, but this time I painted in the back of the gallery to entice people in and to give them room to sit and watch. I had one very faithful viewer who stayed with me for the whole afternoon.
I arrived in the gallery with the black 'outlines' blocked in and an under paint wash mostly in red.
The painting was mostly completed in the gallery, but I spent a little time the next day (around 2 hours) back in my studio finishing it off. I think my photo of it makes it seem darker than it actually is.
I had painted this set up once before about 2 years ago, it's nice to revisit an 'old friend' like this especially when it's being given a new feel and look.
