WIP (Work in Progress) Update: Metro Landscape Painting
Here's where I am with the painting now:
Not finished yet, but it's nice to get the blocks of color down. Can you tell that there is a Metro train? I am still working on making the lines straight. I think I'm going to make some of the sections more painterly-looking, and doing more with the train cars. Any comments on the painting so far?
I am a landscape painter of the East Coast, based in Northern Virginia. I paint local scenes from the Mid-Atlantic region and from my summers in New England. For my oil paintings, I paint both en plein air and in the studio to achieve the semi-abstract representation of the landscape as I see it and as I feel it.
This blog showcases my paintings as I work on them and as I look back on them, techniques, inspirations, events, and snapshots of the stunning American landscape.
