Sunlit Buildings

“Sunlit Buildings: Evening.” Gouache. 8 x 10″. 2015.

It has been a long while since I’ve posted a painting. Mostly this is because, if I’m going to paint, I’d rather work in oils on large canvases, which is pretty much impossible in this small apartment which I’m trying to keep clean. But here’s a little gouache I did just to stay in practice. The scene is sprung from my imagination, with scattered bits of structures seen on my daily wanderings about Boston, or maybe remembered from Virginia, I don’t know.

I’m not happy with the lazy, warped perspective, but my excuse is that I was just doodling with a brush to start. No pencils or rulers involved!
