This painting is my first big undertaking since starting my career as a full time artist in January. Here is a photo of me before I began painting so you can get a sense of the size of the canvas. Those print outs taped to the canvas are my reference photos. I also had it on my iPad while working.
This painting took about 22 sessions of about 3-4 hours each. I painted while at the Artists Studio & Gallery at Patriot Place since we have such a nice big space to work there. During the pandemic closure, I painted with the doors locked so it was a nice quiet place to work. I finally finished it this month but I took photos along the way and created this slideshow that shows my day by day progress.
Here are a few close up details.
I chose the title "Back Bay Reflections," a recommendation from my friend Danielle, as this is where I used to work in Boston before I retired from my graphic design job of 30 years. So the title has both a literal and personal meaning.
