Sunlight on Wet Pavement

no comments

The Sun Peeks Out at 2nd Street (10 x 14 watercolor) $250

Once again the sun on wet pavement caught my eye.   But this time it’s mid afternoon and threatening to rain again soon.  The light was spectacular.  Sunlight streaming from between the clouds always seems so much brighter.

The street is the Corvallis street I know best, SW 2nd looking south toward Art in the Valley and The New Morning Bakery.

The palate is what is becoming my new standard: phthalo blue, cobalt blue, quinacridone brown madder, and raw sienna. I painted conventionally working from light to dark in multiple transparent layers. The “blacks” are phthalo blue and brown madder.

Available through Art in the Valley, Corvallis, Oregon.  Or purchase a print through Fine Art America.

Corvallis Alley

Alley Shortcut (10 x 14 watercolor) SOLD

I drove into Corvallis a little early a couple mornings ago and spent the extra  time before opening the gallery taking pictures of downtown.  The sun was out, but it had just recently rained and the streets were still wet.  The light was gorgeous.   This little alley is just a couple blocks from Art in the Valley.  The reflected light running up the damp pavement caught my eye.

I used a limited palate, but not as limited as my last cityscape: cobalt blue, phthalo blue, raw sienna and quinacridone brown madder. The vast bulk of the painting is brown madder and phthalo blue.

[This painting sold February 23rd 2012, but you may still purchase a print from Fine Art America.]
