This is an example of what I am trying to do now. A busy street scene like this and the capitol building could have been something I spent hours and hours laboring over and working every detail. But I limited the palette and simplified the scene and left areas of the initial block in basically untouched. Had I kept working, I would have wrung all the life out of it. That took confidence. Sometimes stopping is the hardest part.
