Plein Air Week 5

This week I focused more on architecture, the first one I did was this gorgeous old rundown Victorian house a little north west of downtown Warrensburg.

This is a painting I attempted of the courthouse in downtown Warrensburg. I think one of the successes of this painting was how I laid down color in a broad manner in the beginning and not really being to concerned with the detail. But when I took it indoors to touch it up I think I tightened up the rendering and ruined it. One success I've hac this semester is limiting my self on time I'm trying to keep these between 1 to 2 hours.
