City Hall





City Hall 18x24 Oil on wood

Continuing with this Broken Color/ Urban Impressionism studies. Here is a downtown shot of Los Angles City Hall. I'm happy enough with this one so I entered it in the Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art Salon International.

Nice atmospheric perspective, but what I really love about this one is that mid-level building. The shadow/light contrast on the two visible sides and the way it goes back into the tall building just grab me, I don't know.

Wow! The colors in that sky are amazing! Is that a sunrise or a sunset?

...the colors in the buildings are nice too. Great contrasts!

I like the structure, the way you handled the edges of the City Hall. Nice sky too.

Bill, great to watch the progress in your paintings as you try different things. This is another one. Though I know you've been playing with broken color a bit but.....this one nailed it. How you made the top of those buildings seem to shimmer is quite nice. Good luck with the Salon.

i'm loving the broken color, and the way that tree just burns in silhouette from the sky.

Exquisite. Love the orange peel sky.
Oh so moody. Puts me in a dream state, sort of where I live most of the time.

This one has a very dream-like quality with the soft edges and dramatic lighting. The energy you captured in the sky is a great contrast; I think this is one of your best.

William,
You are a freaking great painter. This painting and the Turner/Constable sky are brilliant.
