I painted this on a slow afternoon at the Colorado Farm and Art Market.  We were set up in the alley next to The Indy across from the Pioneer Museum.  I started with the dome and decided to extent the painting down to a second canvas to capture the clock face.  I was experimenting with alternatives to black to represent the shadows.  I tried purples, blues and reds.  Traditionally shadows are represented with cooler colors.  I like the counterintuitive use of the red in the shadows of the tree branches.  I remember trying to look for colors that weren't there–like optical illusions–or subtle variations in color and accentuating them in the painting.  As for the drawing, I tried to move from one point to the next based on what caught my eye, using minimal marks to indicate where and what color things should be and ignored what might be filled in later.
