I'm itchy!

Work in Progress...

"Charleston Rooftop (Temporary title)," Oil on 1/2 prepared maple panel, 24 x 36

I currently have a piece on my easel that I just itch to get back to every time I leave it! This one has all the right stuff for me texture, rhythm and repetition and you can't see it now but the colors are fantastic!

The reference for this one (not the birds) came from one of my visits down to beautiful Charleston, South Carolina a couple of years ago. I could probably find enough reference material in downtown Charleston to last me the rest of my life, so much character!

So... this piece is now in the under drawing stage of its life and I will continue to build my values, define and redefine the shapes until I believe its ready for color, which better be by next week!
