"west on market": she be done

i finished off the painting of the cityscape done from in front of the studio gallery 1311 on market street yesterday.

not too much to say except that i darkened and added some texture to the left foreground trees to bring them forward, finished the vaguely detailed distant background, put a graded wash on the street with room left anteriorly for the center stripe, added some lost and found branches running through the trees. i also darkened the building just a touch with an over glaze as it was getting lost in the clutter.

here is the final version of "west on market" (12"X11").


  1. You brought life into the painting, everything is beautiful , from the sky to the cars , nice flow . The branches in the foreground really add a lot to this work .
