I had a final late night, three hour burst to finish this painting. The cool contrasting colors pulled this one together. This is the corner of Randolph and Wabash in Chicago, under the ‘L’ tracks. The receding arches draw the eye through the painting, creating a strong 3D effect. I like this approach of being able to capture the human figure with so little detail.
This original watercolor was auctioned at the Union League Club of Chicago’s "Over the Rainbow Ball.” This black tie affair supports the Union League Civic and Arts Foundation.
