Between the Lines or Bridge at the Patapsco River

10 x10 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.
I have been reading deKooning's biography and he was speaking about edges. "edges are what we see. It's between the edges that's difficult. That's what Vermeer is good at. We're going to look at a Vermeer . See how he painted between the lines."
With that on my mind I chose a place, mostly in shadow, down by the Patapsco River. And yes friends, I struggled and it beat me. I tried to chose where would I make edges and where would I connect with the same value different color. Another day, another painting.
