Rear Window

Rear Window, 8 x 6
SOLD

This is my entry for Karin Jurick's current Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge. I enjoyed participating in one a couple months ago, but have been preoccupied with other "challenges" since. Hopefully, I'll be able to do it more often in the future.

I love this. You have captured the values just perfectly.

This has such a nice sense of light, and the buildings are done very well. Nice job!

Leslie Hawes said...

Wonderful painting style. It does put me in mind of Hitchcock's Rear Window! :)

Dana Cooper Fine Art said...

This is a nice interpretation of the DSFDF challenge, Stephen. I love your color harmony and your light and shadow on the building in the foreground. Well done!

Gwen Bell said...

Really fantastic job on the challenge! This is my first visit to your blog and I love your work. You have a new fan.

This is my 2nd time to try and leave a comment, hope this doesn't double post.

Strong directional light and excellent values make this a winner. I'm afraid I have some of those "challenges" you were referring to and will have to sit this one out, unless something opens up in my schedule.
