Berkeley Street take two

Looking up Berkeley Street II
Oil with a palette knife on canvas paper
12" x 8"

At our Barnes & Noble show in July I had two different people interested in purchasing my painting called Looking up Berkeley Street so I offered to paint another for the second person who inquired. I finished it this weekend. It was an interesting exercise because I went back and forth between looking at my reference photo and looking at the other painting. There are many differences between the two but I'm pleased with the results. If you'd like to see the first one I painted, here is the link to that blog post.

I've also been working on a really large version of this painting that measures 48" by 30". I sketched it in several months and it's been staring at me ever since. I think I am intimidated by the size. Holy cow what was I thinking?

You can do that big one. I know you can...I know you can!!!

(But I also know it's intimidating---but I know you can...I know you can!)

I love it! I'm sure the large one will be a breeze once you get going...

Scott and I got married in that church! Church of the Covenant, on Newbury Street (corner of Berkeley Street), if that is in fact it. I think it is!
Are you going to have prints of this painting? Maybe you have to do a 'Take 3' HEEHEE!

I love it!
Good luck with the enormous version!
