Capstone Building



Spent most of the day working on a painting of the corner architectural detail of this abandoned building in Lewisville, Arkansas. It has the most amazing brickwork and strange white plaster capstones atop each column. The capstones are what caught my eye.

I think the painting came out OK. I think I finally got the darks dark enough. I stopped before I overworked it (I think).

Will let it rest overnight and re-evaluate.

Hi Speck. I've gotten a kick out of your blog. Growing up, Texarkana was the "big" town to go shopping in, and our school (Bright Star) played basketball against Lewisville. I like the way you used color in only a few places on your drawing of your mother-in-law. Good job!
