Back Alleyway, Chinatown and my back porch
In Los Angeles off Broadway behind the Chinatown shops near the 110 are some narrow alleyways. So narrow you might call them passageways. An old Chinese man and his wife were going upstairs as I was taking photos I think they were uncomfortable with me there, but anything for art...
I didn’t like the painting first time thru going by my reference, so I put that aside and simplified, changing any strong colors to muted complements and edited out a ton of details including much in the background and details on the figure. I had just gotten the NC Weyth Catalogue Raisonne which I’m sure was an unconscious influence for mood.
"Back Porch" 8x10 oil on linen
I'm going to try to occasionally sell a painting in my e- bay store that doesn't quite fit into my current art shows. This being a little nocturne of my back porch. With shows at the Segil fine art Gallery about "abandoned" places and a show At Martha Higgins fine art about urban cityscapes, this little painting will have to be on it's own. 8x10 oil on linen applied to wood.
