Painting in Progress: Midtown

midtown, acrylic on panel (work in progress)
This is a start to another painting in my series based on street photographs I've taken. This one is from a shot I took in Midtown Manhattan. I'm going for a looser feel and deliberately trying to stray away from using the dark outlines around the figures that I usually create.

Many of the building's 40 artists will have their studios open for the open house. Come by, meet the artists, and check out the unique art in one of Chicago's longest-running artists' buildings. Drinks and snacks will be served.

LOCATION: The Cornelia Arts Building is located at 1800 West Cornelia Avenue (at Ravenswood), two streets south of Addison Street. Take the CTA Ravenswood "L" Brown Line to the Addison Street stop. From there, walk 1/2 block east to Ravenswood and go south (right) two more blocks. There is also plenty of off street parking for cars plus parking spaces behind the building.
