Painting in Progress: Goose Island (aerial landscape)

goose island (aerial landscape), work in progress, acrylic on canvas

This new 24x36 acrylic on canvas is starting to come along. I've been building up the higher values with pinks and greens. It's abut 75% there and will be ready with a little more layering of colors, some darker contrasts, and re-painting the borders of the water.

New Paintings: Chicago Aerial Landscapes

I finished these two paintings this week. They are the first in the Chicago series of aerial landscapes. The first one is the north side with a view of Montrose and Belmont Harbors. The second one is a view of South Chicago and Lake Calumet along the Illinois/Indiana border.
