Brain Drucker, and I have included some of his art below. So with both of these artists as my inspiration, I decided to go out and do some plein air painting, as to enjoy the beautiful summer sunshine.
For this painting, I used the skyline of Coney Island for my subject matter. I found some black and white photographs online for reference (pictured left). I wanted to feature Coney Island in this painting because it just says 'summer' to me. I also wanted to use bright and fun colours, and I thought this would be the perfect subject for that.
Below are the steps of my painting in progress. I'm not sure if it is quite finished yet, but I think I will abandon it for awhile and see how it looks in a few days with new eyes. I hope you enjoyed seeing my most recent artwork. Until next time!
