SOLD-Elgin Morning

a sunny lane painting trying to bump the coloring a bit. these scenes abound downtown. students have been saying it was hard for them to paint these scenes because youre so close to them, but i just put a couple of dots on the canvas marking the outer perimeter i want for the roof and bottom of the building, draw it in and then gauge every other shape size off of that. seems to work out most of the time. this color study is the bargain of the week! 8x8 for $75
Stock Island Boat in Morning Light -8x10
contact me for unframed price

went with my painting bud john (click here to go to his blog) to paint this one when we returned to stock island for a morning session. the blues and turqoise sky with the building in the background were irresistable and had to be attempted.

Not only attempted but conquered!
All elements are excellent. The tree line is so suggestive of the palms which are difficult to paint.

Hi Mike,
Both these just sparkle!
Glad to hear your reception went/is going well, congrats! I love your little ones, but the larger do have a bit different impact.
