This pot is proving harder than I thought On my easel now

I am sitting and looking up at my set up.  
I think some more tweaking is definitely coming soon, so this ends day 2.

Copper Pot on my easel now...

 Tonight, after a long nap, I attempted my block in of my first copper pot.  I blocked it in , in color for a change. As you can see in my Paris painting I used Wash of burnt sienna which I rubbed out to a light stain on the canvas.  With my color block in I was going for a simple but more colorful start.  As I build up my color I will be defining the shapes until I am satisfied with the overall composition. 

The art day started with a sketching session at Northlight's Studio with a model.  Thank you Jerell for the opportunity to join in! See you tomorrow. Enjoy.

Paris Fun - day 2

Day 2 of "Paris Fun"
My goal in this painting is to be lose and joyful just like my main figure. Who is really taking in the joy of her first time in Paris.   I want to achieve the impression of the day and the joy felt at finally arriving.  Since this is such an icon and well known subject I am taking a somewhat different approach to laying it in by waiting to let this stage dry before I finish up impasto.
So the struggle continues.
