Harlem Adventures- Apollo Theater
Painting outdoors poses a lot of problems as compared with painting in the studio, where you have a controlled environment. Working on the sidewalks of a great city requires even more attention.
The autumn light was wonderful , I went out early in the morning straight to 125th street ready to capture the hustle-bustle of people and the light on the iconic Apollo Theater facade.
I opened my easel and pochade box strategically in the sun trying to neutralize the 12c. temperature.
After some minutes stablishing the composition and block in, my view of the theme is completely blocked!

What to do? Considering that I was painting in a neighborhood that I had no idea of what kind of risks I was exposed, I just continued working, trying to see "through" the obstacles.
Little by little, his stand was assembled, my view was cleared, and we got along with each other all the morning in our activities.
