Santa Monica Blvd.


oil on panel............ 11x14"
The intense, burst of vermillion from the backlit flowers to the right caught my eye. I also liked the idea of using a dominant and repetitive color (red) to suggest the relationship between organic and man-made objects.

You guys are soooo good with under paintings, thanks for putting it so detailed online.

Nice grasp of atmospheric perspective, as well as unifying color harmony. Not easy to make L.A. come off as unifed in any respect, but you do pull it off.

Hi Rene,

I think underpaintings can make or break a painting. Actually, that is my favorite beginning step in the painting process.

Hi Narthax,

Thank you for the compliment.
I agree with you, L.A. does have a sense of discordancy, which makes it such an intriguing subject matter.
