On The Street

 Sometimes it feels like I'm making very little progress. This is one of those days. I spent a great deal of time trying to paint straight vertical lines on the buildings in this one, but I'll have to go back and do more. 

The figure on the left— the young guy in the white shirt— looked too chalky to me, so I livened up his skin color using only earth pigments, no white. Then I went on to the street surface. One of the white lines had been mis-measured, so I fixed that, but struggled with the addition of dark places on the white lines where the street paint had been worn away by shoes and cars and weather.
