Neart Burbank Airport and Charity Auction

Here is a view from driving down San Fernando Road in Burbank this is based on cheating the view and simplification to the maximum degree. The reference being the tiny corner of a photo blown up so far it was almost abstract. This truly is an "impression" of the area.

I dig the second one you are putting in for the charity.. nice persp and the bush tree thingy strikes a slightly darkish note. I love Fred Cumming too!! One of the guys on WC lives next to him in England and gets to go out PA painting with him (lucky bastard!).

The Cumming paintings are wonderful as is your into- the- light scene. The high lights reflecting off the cars are wonderful!

I'm sorry. One last comment. Love the broken, shimmer-like edges. You have the right brush touch for this particular atmosphere.
That's my last comment...promise!

I love "Near Burbank Airport"... the simplification of the cars, that plane off in the distance, everything. This one is a home run!

thanks Bill -- I feel pretty good about it. Perhaps not on a South Connector level, but in the neighborhood.

Thanks for bringing Fred Cuming's work to our attention. I wasn't aware of it but will take a much closer look at it now.

That Fred Cumming guy looks like he's taken the Painting with Hawthorne book to heart.

Great work, never heard of him.

I'm digging your progress as well. Whacky palettes man... :)

I like how you got "glare" in your painting, nice touch!
Cuming's work is awesome, I love how bleak it looks.

Fred Cuming is currently at The Royal Academy 'Summer Show'.... And showing his class amidst the usual junkpile of attention-grabbing trivia and gimmicks that pass as 'Fine Arts' in the UK today.
