I think it's interesting to see works in progress. I started this painting on Thursday and plan to finish it up this week, but in the mean time, I thought I would share it at this stage anyway. Why not, right? What I find interesting for my own introspection, is to see how I worked the top portion first (I think to completion) and left the bottom sketch alone. The bottom part includes people eating at an outdoor cafe and some flowers and landscaping. I think it will be a nice juxtaposition with the structural city buildings painted above.
The reference is a photo I took on one of my walks around Boston. When I post the final painting I'll share a little more about exactly where the photo was taken.
