Night On The Town

Postby bpier » Tue Jul 22, 2008 5:59 pm

I really wanted to paint something that would alow me to play with light more. Still needs something but here it is, titled Night On The Town, a 16"x20" oil.

WOWOWOOWOWWWO!

The colours are fantastic.

The yellows and subsequent
ightness remind me of Vincent's 'Yellow House at Arles'.


Also, strangely, reminds me of when I went to Cephalonia years ago with my wife to be!

I had to upload a new image. The quality of the last was so poor and distorted. There is a lot of yellow in this piece, but a little more subdued than that. This image isn't great either.....but better.

I actually like how it appears in the first picture better... It's the depth of the
yellows that makes it stand out. While you cannot alter this painting to match how it looks in the above picture- you might consider making a similar one in the future.

It has a warmth that the actual one doesn't have. The actual one is more typical of what one would expect. I think its whats different that can make an artist truly stand out.

Either way- Its beautiful work.

Thanks Crystal and Nigel and Makena. I have to agree with you. I like the first one better also. After comparing the original with the two images, it looks like niether one. Actually, it fall somewhere in the middle. It does have that warm yellow glow, just not quite as dark. I'm a terrible photographer. :D Thanks for looking at it...........Brian

Actuallty, I would make them two seperate paintings like Monet did with his paintings of Rouen cathedral where he painted the same scenes at different times of day to show the effect of natural light on a subject.

The first painting I would describe as early evening.

The second I would say afternoon but with storm
ewing.

Just a thought.

Still, both are excellently executed.

Wow, what kind of camera are you using? How can they be so different? I guess you used flash on the first one. Both look great, the first one is more appealing to most I would think. The second one is quieter. Nigel's idea is good on painting a second version.

I don't know what to say except thanks to all of you for the great feedback. I just might take Nigel's suggestion and do another one.

Brian :D

Both are wonderful but I like your second post better. It is how you wanted it to be I think it just needs a little more depth from nature. Wanted to have some fun with this inspirational image of yours. Hope it helps.
