52nd National Catalog


Fixer Upper is an old two-story house in a historic district of Galveston, Texas. The late afternoon light casting long shadows on the building stopped me in my tracks! I quickly sketched a small value and composition study, then, starting with light values in the sky and background, I established a pattern of sunlight and shadow based on my value sketch. At that point, I was committed to the composition and didn’t make changes even though it was a race with the sun as the light continued to shift. My process is traditional in that I paint from light values to dark ones, reserving the white of the paper for the brightest accents.
