What I haven't liked so far is the painting looks so flat with only one layer of paint applied. But after 3-4 layers, the dimension and colors start to pop. The upper right green, purple; then the yellow w/mask, and the orange-red balloons all have 3-4 layers of paint applied. The buildings and everything else is still only a single layer of paint.
The one problem I'm starting to think about is how to make the dark green windows actually look like windows???? Any suggestions?? I'm thinking more layers of green, then some white glazes indicating reflections from buildings across the street.
I've come up with a name for this piece and it's "Pollywood & Vine".
I like the brick wall. You have a great imagination, very important for the surrealistic style you want to paint in. Don’t loose yourself in to much detail, better work on stronger compositions. Nice job though, keep it up.
Very nice work!
I guess we all have different perpectives & views.... S.F.? I had assumed in was L.A. - the famous 'Hollywood & Vine' intersection there - with a pun.... 'course there's probably a Starbucks on the corner there now too!
Are you going to put 'stars' on the sidewalk? I find this one fascinating, & I'm always looking forward to seeing new things every time I view it.
I only went thru there years ago while cruising thru there, Belair, Mulholland Dr., etc. I was so shocked when I drove through Hollywood & Vine, and saw nothing but prostitutes, homeless, XXX theatres, adult stores, etc. It was such a letdown, ok maybe not when I was a sailor, but nontheless it wasn't what I had envisioned.
I've finally got an initial layer of paint down on all; and multiple layers on many items as well. It's amazing how the colors "pop" and there's more depth when multiple layers are applied. Sort of like airbushing multiple layers of Kandy on a car.
I'll post final results when all the layers have been applied; probably a couple of weeks.If you dbl click on the pic, it does enlarge just slightly.
