Surf Shop Confidentials (SOLD)

and now it looks exactly like this.

a bit more in focus with blue washes over the area in shade and a little more white to define area in sunlight. The only color I have used is a mix of blue and raw umber as my black and white with the red tone of the background being my middle ground. Happy New Year. I keep telling myself something's coming..........................................

I might not paint anything else all year. still working on it.
Kevin likes my works in progress. This is the Secret Spot Surf Shop in Nag's Head, NC. I start most of my architectural paintings this way. Red toned to a middle ground tone. The remnants of my grid is still visable in the center of the painting. "Do you have dreams?"......... "Yeah, I have dreams. I dream of fire and intense heat....Don't pay any attention to my dreams."
Acrylic on canvas 12"X24" (SOLD)

I like how the image starts a little vague and then comes into view, almost as if I were focusing a camera.

Keep showing all the progressions. This is pretty neat.
