Magnola Gardens

A view of Magnola Gardens in Charleston, SC.  I did focus on the darks and this piece was a little darker than usual.

Warf at Monteray CA

I need to adjust values since this isn't a bad photo.  The painting is a little light.  I did get two new lamps which I'll soon begin to us.

SF Chinatown redo

It does look different than my prior efforts but I only believe it is marginally successfully.  It is different than the last smaller one done a few months ago and I am somewhat happier with the design of the cars.  A looseness of application is welcomed too.

Paris Restaurant

A restaurant I noticed because of the sign.  Trying to loosen up and used a "Kingman" like style for the figures.  Note the artist's page Dong Kingman.  I do like the dark areas and I am pleased overall with the piece.

Beach at LB

Another viewing of Laguna Beach.  This does show a little difficulty with values.  It probably would have been a stronger piece with stronger darks.  My photo bulbs may be burning out or there may be a white balance issue.
