Here's a new one I'm working on, a scene from a small town near St. Louis. I'm changing the photo a bit to create more light coming through the trees. Right now I'm blocking in the main objects with one layer of color. After I finish that, I'll be ready to work on details and add more color. This is on Mylar, a frosted drafting film. I've used this material on my last four paintings and I love it!
This new painting is in my Etsy Shop It's 8" x 10", titled, "Kevin's Place". I took a lot of photos on a sunny, snowy morning and had my husband pose in front of this darling cafe. Using artistic license, I took out the snow and changed some of the back ground. I love the shadows and window reflections! Next month, I'll post more cityscapes.
