Urban Landscapes

 

 

8″ x 14″ oil on panel

6″ x 10″ oil on canvas panel

Two new oil paintings. I’ve been posting more work on my sketching blog recently, you can see that work here.

These two paintings started out as sketches.  The top one is from a favorite sketching area of mine, North Portland near the Widmer Brewery, looking toward the Union Pacific Rail yard.

The lower painting is the view from the new OHSU campus on the South Waterfront. At the time of the sketch, Cirque du Soleil was encamped along the river for their summer show. Downtown Portland is in the background. I was interested in this scene because the bright tents of the circus stood out from the mostly grey scene.

After a mostly beautiful October, the rains have returned here in Portland so I should have a lot more opportunity to paint clouds over the coming months.
