Greenwood Cemetary Condos

Yes, that's two different colors of paper. You may be seeing more of that as I go through this new sketchbook.

Doesn't really matter - it's a lovely painting.

Nice composition and I like all the subtle greens/greys, set against the bright primaries.

Bill Sharp said...

This has a softness that's really appealing.

Wow, what a wonderful sense of light--the warm lines really add a lot!

Jason— this is so beautifully done. The colours are exquisite.

Rob Carey said...

All great. The red truck off center, the bold building on the right, high trees going off the picture, fence shadows, sloping graveyard. I love this composition.

What a great drawing-
I love the softness and the way that you designed the trees-and that you did not use black line!

Jason I really like the loose feeling and emotion in this one! When did that big yellow building go up?

Thanks everyone! Yes, this is one of those moments when I was just walking down the street and was struck by the composition.

I'm really please with the softness of this, but it was somewhat accidental. The way the paper took the paint and and the pen color (Pitt sanguine) just made it happen.

Veronica, I'm not totally sure when the condo building started going up, but it won't stay yellow--that's just the insulation or something. I expect it will be clad in prefab brick like so much else these days.
