Semi Cab




A little night shot in the industrial areas of LA between the La River and East LA. Just a quick 11x14 to keep my atrophying oil hand in.

Nice, putting the oranges in. The separation of warm & cool, plus the placement of the semi cab made it really yin-yang-y.

One of my William Wray favorites here. The subtle detail of telephone poles and wire are crucial. Well done!

Your night paintings are really something and this is another good one. Did you paint it on the spot?

Hi Bill

Night painting - great mood and lighting.

Nice design - dominant shape with vertical and horizontal line placed at just the right spot, well done.

Very reconizable William Wray painting!
