My current artistic interests revolve around flatness and design with maybe a feeling of 3-D using experiments with water media. Looking for patterns using my photography and notes and then transferring to a painting. And maybe including some whimsy and fun.
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.
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.
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.
