As much as I wanted to get out and about in the city this weekend, the triple-digit temperatures made my cool studio a much more attractive option.
First up, a special commissioned request for one of my clients: a NYC harbor scene on
Metro subway fare card to give as a gift. I was surprised that I could squeeze all of these elements onto such a tiny canvas:
Next up, another request for a
Metro subway fare card painting. Another client of mine suggested I paint a view of the Queensboro Bridge and I dove in this weekend. I may add a bit more detail to the suspension rigging but I'm liking it as it is so far.
What do you all think?
I was so pleased with the bridge that I used it as a study of sorts and began another version on an actual stretched canvas, measuring about 9" x 12". It's not finished but I made some decent progress in an afternoon on this larger version:
A closer look:
I'll post further progress as I make it (I'm optimistic!) and both bridge paintings will be available for sale on Etsy when complete.
Guess the heat was good for something after all.
