Bus Stop Paintings

These paintings are from a photo that Sabrina took in Hartford. I tried the oil first (on the bottom) and didn't like it much. It has been sitting in my studio for a couple of weeks, unloved. Then I decided to try it in watercolor. I cropped the picture to focus on the people. I did the watercolor the day before yesterday, considering it a failure also. Today I looked at them with new eyes and actually like them both. I doctored the watercolor with pastel, which livened it up a bit, and put it with the rest of my winter work on the wall. The oil still needs a little more work, but it is back in favor and will be allowed to live after all.
