I hear gunshots in the backround. I bet there is a body behind that wall. Blighty! Great mood on a great piece.

These minimalist canvas noir productions are quite effective with their range of tasty grays. And the focal, flaring, light leads the eye through and beyond. Atmospheric effects very impressive.

I'm not crazy about the tires on that bus, but I love what looks like a misty (foggy?) night and how you did the fence nearby.

Is that main light source gesso'd that way or is that the result of your brush strokes. It's so cool!

Tremendous piece of work. I love it. Best rendering of moonlight I've seen. The sky reminds me of Albert Ryder's work somehow.

BG, I get kind of lazy when they get this small and in the shadow. You may not like the next set either. Brace yourself.
