Corner Station

Corner Station, 8x10

Today the city of Round Rock, just north of Austin, sponsored their first annual Chalk Walk Arts & Music Festival. Plein Air Austin was invited to join in the festivities, which several of us did. The weather was perfect and many turned out. The subject I chose is an old gas station that has been restored on the outside and re-purposed inside into small offices. It's a really cool little place.

Cool little place and a cool little painting, great job!

I love all those pink undertones come through - they make everything around them pop.

I really like the variety of vertical lines/shapes and your very loose painting style in this one, beautiful!

Love the punctuation of the red gas pumps. Great subject and wonderful painting.

Very nice painting Stephen. Great subject and I like how the underpainting accents the gas pumps and provides harmony throughout the painting.

Visiting your art pieces Stephen is always a little slice of joy/happiness. The interpretation. The feel. The technique.

I'm a huge fan of under painting.I think it makes the painting.
This is awesome.
