NEW WORK

I thought it would be a good time to leave the past and look at "whats happinin now". I recently completed this new watercolor where I resorted to liquid acrylics to get the fall foliage in front of the darkened facade of the building. This is from an old photo of the Logon Square area in Philadelphia. In retrospect I would use less red in the sky.

The second piece is acrylic over an older painting on a panel. I wanted to focus attention on the interface between the sky and the foreground but I don't think I succeeded. I'm keeping it on the easel for some more viewing time while I considere going back in and working on that interface with a lighter, warmer color.

The last is a recent watercolor of a skyline of sorts of downtown Paducah. To actually see this view one has to stand at 6 places simultaneously. I did a similar painting in pastel several years ago; it was fun to do it again.
