I've been having so much fun working on this painting of Stephen Avenue in Calgary but, though I tend to work very organically, I realized that I needed to straighten some of my lines. This is where painter's tape always comes in handy. I tend to love strong lines and edges in paintings, but usually work with them very organically, which typically means that nothing is straight, but with this image I felt that it was important to get those details right (or a little more right in any case). I'm sure I'll veer off my taped lines at some point, but I do think this is a lovely way to work right now. I actually like the look of the tape, that lime green looks pretty fabulous against that burnt orange background.
