Painting the Reston Town Center

"Early Evening at the Reston Town Center" work in progress day 2, oil on linen, 22"h x 28"w, copyright Jill Banks 2013
Today was a blustery Spring day -- so I followed up my plein air painting of the Reston Town Center with a day in the studio.  "Early Evening at the Reston Town Center" is still a work in progress -- with decisions being made as I go along.  A big change today was to get rid of many of the details I'd painted during the plein air session that distracted from the scene.  There's more thinking to do, and more painting.
