Trying To Be Smart About Layers

So if the storm knocks out power and cuts my working time by as much as two or three days, I have to make some good decisions about which areas to paint now, so they'll dry in time for the next color to be layered over them. Also: the really critical parts of Selfies are the black frames on the windows. The vertical ones are only a half inch wide, while the horizontals are thicker. I got a little sloppy when I first put them in, and now I have to go back and fix them.

I darkened— slightly— the white bag in the lower right hand corner.

Early this afternoon:

Since I need strong daylight to determine whether a color is working correctly or not, I painted the road surface of the avenue. Now, in the actual real world, there are three places on the right side where the words "Bus Only" appear. I have to make a decision: paint them all in? Leave them out entirely? I think all three makes the right side look a little cluttered. I like it the way it is now, with no words at all, but is it too empty?
