A large table and wide windowsills makes painting at the Larry Holmes Ringside Restaurant far less of a challenge than the standard 30 inch square tables of the local pubs.
Thanks to Monica for taking this photo last Tuesday evening. The table was large enough that I was able to spread out a bit and let a couple of other people try their hand at painting.
I decided to work in full color again, choosing my palette to give me a full value range from light to dark. When painting in low light situations it is easier to paint by value rather than hue. I look for light vs. dark and warm vs. cool. Aside from that, I just go with the beat of the music and the energy of the environment.
The next morning I take a look at the paintings and see how the hues have interacted. So many happy accidents occur while painting in the dark.
