Blue Star Brewery
This is my first Blue Star Brewery painting. I will be showing my paintings there for the entire month of January. I took lots of photos last week--interiors as well as exteriors. I mask off areas of the photos to get the best design posibility. Then I do a value drawing to establish the light and focal point. Sometimes I even run the photo through a computer program that gives me different color tints for the scene. Always my aim is to loosen up and make the painting "sing".
