San Antonio Riverwalk at night WIP


I am liking the start of this one. Usually a good sign. Mark, set, go!!!!
The reference photo turned out very well, so I have good material to work from. Yay!

Bare bones, folks. When the bones are laid out in the right way, one can sing the flesh onto the body of the painting with ease. Honestly, I might need to make some changes to the arch of the bridge or reflection... Not quite sure just yet.

Wonderful bones, Sara. I think this is gonna look marvelous... I've been to that spot as well.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks y'all!
I set this piece aside for a while, but will be getting back to it again soon. I am kind of thinking that I would prefer to go back out to the location and just work on it there. My reference photo is a good one, but its just not like being there.

Really, Douglas! I am always looking for more painting buddies, so if you want someone to paint with next time you are in Texas, let me know! That goes for the rest of you painters out there too!

The area is so beautiful, I could see an entire series revolving around the Riverwalk in SA!
