"New York City Street" Painting Almost Done
I'm almost done with this one ... and it's been challenging! Sometimes I just wish I could get it right from first stroke to the last, but that rarely happens. There is a huge difference in complexity when dealing with a large canvas over a smaller one. Perhaps that's due to the added pressure that comes with trying to make sure all the time spent is worth it.
I do like the excitement of the street. The vibrancy and action.
See an earlier version of this painting here. This also follows with the same contrasts and similar palette to my "Dining Al Fresco" painting.
