Georgetown Square

Georgetown Square, 6x8
SOLD

Plein Air Austin joined the plein air group from Williamson County this morning on the town square of their county seat, Georgetown, Texas. It's one of Texas' best-preserved old downtown areas, with plenty to paint. The building at the end of the block with the turret on top is the Masonic Lodge of Georgetown, built around 1900.

Beautiful light and really like the contrast between the "finished" areas with the "unfinished" areas.

Love the way the warmth of your under painting comes through. This painting is sound structurely with such artistic brushwork and style.

Wonderful light in this Stephan, and I like how you left the lower right corner vague.

Love the yellow side of that building.

Laurel Daniel said...

You really got the drama of the lighting and the wonderful lines of the historical buildings. LOVE IT!

Your architecture always has an ease to it but still retains the important lines. So well done! Love the bright spot of gold, but the real magic that happens for me is in the shadows. Perfect values, no mud, just the right indication of detail. Really solid, Stephen!

Wonderful. I thought it was either Fredericksburg or Georgetown. Lighting is dramatic and the scene timeless.

You really made this painting sing. Not only do I love the bright light yellow on the building I love the orange in the foreground. Beautiful.
