Three Water Tanks - works in progress

These acrylic on canvas paintings are my start of a new series of water tanks based on photos I've taken mostly in Chicago and New York. I've also referenced some images found on the internet to sketch out some different compositions.

I'm trying to keep these looser - heavily textured but still in my style. I'm also working to expand my palate by introducing some new colors while developing a more immediate sketch-like feel.

While not totally complete, they were done quickly - in about 3 hours today. Probably have about another hour total to go until they're finished.

Painting in Progress: Manhattan - July 2010

Manhattan, acrylic on canvas, work in progress, 7.08.10

The aerial landscape of Manhattan is close to finished. A couple more layers in some areas and some highlights and it'll be done. I have a couple more paintings just at the beginning stages - one is a larger view of the NYC area and the other is a close-up of the mid section of Manhattan.
