Stephen,This is spectacular.thanks so much for sharing.xoxo
Definitely most marvelous.Love what you did with this and where you left it.Of course, Hans may not be of the same opinion, though I believe he may well concur.
I like it! And as always I love watching the progression, in this case, how the muted impression of "Dumbo" becomes the sharper tighter "Dumbo Finish".
Nicely done Steve.L
To bloody gorgeous for words. Fraser, you know I'd never contradict you. I really love the different areas of light with such different qualities all in the same scene. I want this picture... How much?
I absolutely love this piece!
Thanks everyone, back at class tonight to work on the portrait. I'm having a challenging time learning how to manipulate the oil but I'm enjoying it.
Great composition Stephen.Best Regards
I love this! I love urban architecture painting in general but the sweeping curves of the bridges are just fantastic, adding a bit of futuristic space to urban grit.And...you use photographs rather than painting on site. Why are painters so intent on only painting on site ("plein air") or directly from a model? What if the model is unavailable or you don't have space or opportunity to paint on an urban vantage point?
Thanks guys, I like to do sketching on location but I've never tried oil painting on location. One of the issues for me is I'm trying to capture light and the light changes too quickly. A photo freezes the moment allowing me the time to work.
This is beautiful! I'm in love with the array of colors you've meshed together on the building on the right.
What one of my professors would do would be paint an acrylic piece on location, then work from that when painting a much larger oil rendition of it. Pretty similar to working from photo, but there's still that study of light and color that happens with that original painting.
wow! Great, with no doubt
I was just in DUMBO for the first time 2 weeks ago so I can really appreciate this one!
