BELLEVILLE STREET WITH XMAS LIGHTS

Oil on Masonite 12"x9" PRICE: $250
In doing this painting i was curious for the color of the snow when it gets hit by different colors of light
Pintando este cuadro me he sentido curioso en observar los colores de la nieve cuando recibe los diferentes colores de las luces

Si sigues insistiendo en tus paisajes nevados vas a terminar con sabañones; claro que viviendo en esta esquina de la tierra gozamos de estas bellezas tan a menudo que es difícil de dejarlas de lado.
Me gustan esas reflexiones creadas por la luz artificial, muy logradas, valiente.

Thank you Bill, i appreciate,in a couple of time I thought that the shirt was too big for me, in doing this painting, but I had faze and it came out fine.

Jesus.. this is a beauty ! The first thing that I noticed was the sharp perspective and colours. But, what really "turns my crank", is the distance on the right background. The impression of the lights, foliage and street that you have created feels, 'dead on' and very complimentary to rest of the painting.

Thank you Frank, it was a bit of a challenge, but I work out of the obstacles. The next painting is going to be Front st in the middle of a storm.Also a challenge one
