O’Riley’s

O’Rileys

I’m returning to subject matter I haven’t painted in years, small cityscapes from downtown Pensacola; and I’m liking it so much I can’t believe it took me so long to get back to it! The subject matter is far less demanding than figurative work in terms of accuracy which gives me more room to select and paint the details I find most beautiful. Painting this piece also helped me realize how much more I enjoy painting smaller, simpler works and how much more I prefer painting direct sunlight and shadow with the corresponding changes in color temperature. Painting is a journey!
