Streets of San Francisco


This is a painting that I just finished for the blog Different Strokes from Different Folks by Karin Jurick. It was a lot of fun. I rarely painting buildings (to this extent anyways) so it was a great learning experience for me. Now I am ready to tackle the many century homes in our area that are ripe for painting!

This is fantastic. Great unusual colors that hold it together so beautifully. I even like the clouds floating above like giant autumn leaves. Very inventive!

Hi Jennifer, this is the painting that brought me to your site. I loved the colours and use of underpainting.
