Upside down

Last weekend I decided to challenge myself with an upside down painting. I picked a photo I had taken looking down at the construction area at the new Austonian Building on Congress Ave. By painting it upside down it was impossible to focus on details. It was all shapes. But when I finally turned it right side up, I kinda liked the results.

This won first place in a Wimberley Valley Art League juried show.


  1. Connie,the orocess is very curious, and the result is very nice that it is the important.
    Kind regards.

  2. Thank you, Vicente. The biggest advantage of turning the photo upside down and painting it that way was that I could completely ignore the subject matter which didn't interest me. It was a big step away from just seeing objects toward seeing shapes and patterns.
