#3 red

oil on canvas
155 x 40.5cm

guess what?
this painting was sold June 2007 - hooray!

Sunset City

oil on canvas
106 x 153cm

this is what it looks like now
(still unfinished)

I covered the entire thing with a really awful yellow because I still didn't like where it was going, after all...

The idea now is to get the lower, foreground bits into some darker blues & purples; keeping the yellows & adding some red glow in the middle bits; and fading into paler green-ish blues in the top sky distance.
A kind of push-and-pull of warm & cool colour.


oil on 3 canvasses
89 x 89cm each

These 3 canvasses got to this point a few weeks ago & I was not sure where to go from here - then several people at different times saw them and liked them, not thinking them unfinished, as I had been.
So I guess I'll leave them as they are for the time being...

The edges of the canvasses are painted a dark purple similar to the colour I've used to frame them here.

One guy who saw them said this work reminded him of rainy weather in the city - thus the name.
