Day 5 - Street View

"Street View"
4" x 4"
acrylic on panel

This was another exercise is restraint, and I failed miserably...
I'm trying to use less brushstrokes, and be more patient about putting down color, so that I try and mix correctly the first time.  But, I kept going on this one, reworking and reworking and this turned into this...

Though the color ended up being more true to the source photo, the painterly-ness(?) is gone and it looks blah to me.  So, I will try again, maybe with a timer set, to force me to just put it down and leave it.
