On Commercial St.-8x10

contact me to purchase

this larger piece was done from a small study i did standing on the streets of provincetown a few months ago. this has a very small amount of values in it. its a good idea to break out objects with differing colors and not with differing values. keep the darks and mids "welded" to each other with limited values for a good solid design. you can see this concept if you squint and see how the tree on the right ties to the background shape, which melds with the shadows of the side of the buildings on the left. makes for a solid design. colors are really insignificant after that's in place.
