Arrangement In Gray, With Accents, oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches, copyright ©2015
Arrangement In Gray, With Accents is a work in progress depicting Riverside Street in my hometown of Spokane WA. The title is a bit of a play on the weather, set against the predominantly neutral tones of granite and marble that make up the core of the downtown architecture. In this painting the loose cartoon was quickly laid out, and the imprimatura was added over the top, after the cartoon had dried. I immediately started working into the imprimatura while it was still wet.
