"Haleiwa" 11x14" Oil on Canvasboard by Richard Robinson

Hi guys, spent the morning painting in Haleiwa - the local village. Got so far with this one and had to pack up because the sun hit my spot after about 4 hours so I went home and added the combi van from the photo I took. Really like this one. After the previous two paintings where I didn't pay much attention to drawing and didn't feel like I pushed myself I felt like knuckling down on this one and really gave my brain a good workout. I took some progress photos for you too.

Like the combination/coordiation of colors between store and the van. A happy coincidence that the VW came along for you to capture in this joyous little painting.
