After Midnight (17 x 23 watercolor) $700
After Midnight began with a lecture and demonstration I did for the The Watercolor Society of Oregon’s Fall 2016 Convention. For the demo, I painted the Munich Rathaus Tower six time in various stages of completeness. Below is the one painting of the six I completed:
Munich Rathaus (8 x 13 watercolor) $200
I liked the this little painting so much, I felt compelled to do it again in a larger format. But I didn’t want to just repeat the painting on a larger scale. The tower, like many in Germany, reminds me of fairy tale illustrations. So I ran with that notion tweaking the scene just a little to add a rather unreal illustrative moon and an impossible sky.
Or purchase a fine art print of either painting.
A Spire of Saint Paul's (11 x 15 watercolor) $300
This is one of the twin clock tower spires of Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London. I love Saint Paul’s Cathedral though it is nothing like the Gothic Cathedrals I fell in love with on my first trip the England. Unlike England’s early cathedrals, Saint Paul’s was designed by a single man, Sir Christopher Wren and built over just thirty years. The result is a clean coherent building rather unlike the the quirky cathedrals I first admired.
Wren designed and saw built numerous churches in the vicinity to compliment and be complimented by the cathedral. But in the London Blitz practically the entire neighborhood was bombed and burned to the ground. The cathedral is now surrounded by modern offices. The Millennium Bridge now leads directly to it providing a very modern show case for Wren’s jewel.
