SOLD-On the Waterfront-0117B-6x8

this scene is right next to conch republic seafood restaurant. some of it anyway!

i made up everying to the right of the staircase, taking a page out of the playbook of one of my fave artists Edward Seago. they say he often made up half the stuff he was using in a painting. he had painted outdoors so much that he had a virtual library of stuff to pull from in his imagination. i remember early on in my painting career not being able to do that at all, and how frustrating it was to have to be a slave to painting what i saw.
