Brooklyn Bridge WIP
oil on canvas
36 x 48
I am out of my funk. I havent worked on this the past few days because I wasnt really sure what I wanted to do next. I woke up early this morning (6:30) determined to work through it and get this painting as close to finished as possible. I love the way it is looking and it feels so good. Much better then the ugly stage.
I think I am pretty much done with the foreground. I need to work out the background and make sure not to get too caught up in the details. It is the background and to keep the feeling of perspective I need to keep the city pushed back. No sharp contrasts. No bright colors. I need to show the atmosphere between the fore and backgrounds.
This is a commission for one of my husbands co-workers. His wife is from Brooklyn. He wants to give this to her for Valentine's day. Reference.
