I am experimenting with an idea for a nocturne from photo reference of Newbury Street at dusk. I love the backlit glow of the buildings and people and the exodus of cars from the city onto the Pike. They hit the ramp across Mass Ave and merge with a stream of taillights migrating west. Meanwhile, pedestrians meander the streets, moving to a variety of different destinations at different paces. The painting is about these contrasting energies. I have washed in light, shadow, silhouettes and am pushing around a few of the elements to make sure I convey the movement, which is the focus - in a very small piece of geography there are many stories, most unaware of the others in close proximity. Night. I'll keep you "posted".
