Chrysler Building, Dusk, © 2018, work in progress (click on image for larger view)
This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

Sunset Light On The Chrysler Building
I took the reference photo for this painting on an overcast day, so the light on the building was diffused. The painting itself has been looking a little dull to me; I'd painted the sky as a deepening sunset to give it a little interest, but recently I realized that if it were a true picture of a sunset, the west side of the building could be lit up by the warm rays of the sun. There are just slivers of orange-y color, but I think it's enough to bring the building to life.
