Architecture is difficult to paint. Lines, angles proportion and perspective. I actually kind of love the challenge. It's about as mathematical as I get these days. On a 5x7 canvas it is really a challenge. The shapes in the painting are so small, you have to be spot on or it is glaringly inaccurate. I had to use my left hand to steady my right so I could get them straight. Not to mention, in addition to the mist, the temperature was in the 40's so my hands were a little cold.
A great challenge for me and a nice little painting for a Sunday morning.
