Back to "Hudson" NYC River View

"Hudson" work in progess, oil, 40"h x 30"w, ©Jill Banks 2012
In the midst of time spent getting ready for my August visiting residency in the Torpedo Factory (art center in Alexandria,VA), I snuck in some nice hours returning to this painting, an enlarged version of one started in the hotel room shower in Soho. Every morning for a three-day stay, I worked on the little version of this ... watching the sunrise on the Hudson ... and the city come to life.

It must have been quite a scene. I'm not usually a sunrise watcher. Something to change about myself.

See "Sunset in NYC" on my web site for the view at a 90-degree angle ... at sunset."Sunset in NYC" and the painting sketch done in the shower are my models for this piece.
