The only success I had with oil painting in the city. I was fairly pleased with this little scene. And we had a nice spot to work too without a lot of traffic. I think we painted on different ends of Bank Street for two days - though we hauled our stuff all over looking for an ideal spot. I think I was intimidated and didn't want to be seen. My friend Mike Rooney just gave me a good idea - put up a tip jar and then people would hurry on by and ignore us! LOL
I wiped this one off.
And this one was a goner too. It had potential perhaps, but one must remember that its about the journey, not the destination. :)
And we journeyed all over Central Park, the Met (ahhhh), Chinatown, Little Italy, Broadway, Hudson River Park, the villages, and I spent a couple hours perusing art in the galleries in Chelsea. And there was still not enough time to see as much as we wanted. But I took 912 photos and should have a lot of fun putting those to use in my upcoming studio paintings. I can't wait. Its such an inspiring city.
