Riverwalk at Night #8 SOLD

Am trying to get a few ahead in my Riverwalk paintings but they are selling as fast as I can paint! What a happy problem! Thought it might be interesting to show how I adapt a photo into a painting. It is never a process of copying, but of using the photo as a start and inspiration. In this painting I added the night sky in the upper right and eliminated the bright lighting on the upper left. And always trying to simplify the shapes so that the viewer can "read" the space but not get hung up in the details. At least that is the goal!
