Sierra Madre Carport 2
oil on wood 18x24
Here is another take on a Sierra Madre Carport. This is literal taking twenty steps forward (on another day) from the last Carport painting I did. I spent a little more time on the drawing on this one as the perspective and cars were pretty tricky. Consequently, I got a little more careful with the painting application. Its a bit tighter for me than most of my work lately, but it still like the feel of it. (Any roughness is from the surface gesso strokes) I tried to get the coating of dust on the trunk of the T- bird, I don't know it it comes off on the scan (or in person), but it was one of the big reasons it painted the scene. Odd what makes us inspired to do what we do...
I just found out that the Pinney House painting below won first palce in the show!
