Corner Store

20″x16″ oil on canvas


Corner Store was painted in a plein air style and is 20″x16″ in oil on canvas. The warmth of the brick struck such a strong contrast to the cool light! I am truly enjoying exploring townscape painting. It provides opportunities for linear perspective and the presence of human activity.

The road stripes from the crosswalk give a  lead-in to the mid-ground focal point and subject of the painting. The coolish light and receding street on the left give a much needed sense of space leading into the background. The crossing light and green street sign provide a nice “stopper” while secondary details like the tree, snow, and vehicle add to the feel of the street scene from here in upstate NY.

Hope you enjoy,
