ooo i like this Catherine--I'm intrigued by this green you are using and how it affects the temperature of both this and your previous painting...in a really good way!

beautiful!

Your mastery of light and shadow makes you such an expert, Catherine....going the Old Master way. I suppose you do a tonal plan first, while I just jump into the deep end (meaning the blank canvas)!

Nice! And perfect for today ; )

Heather Proll Karp said...

This is an amazing painting...like the movement and the heaviness at the same time. WOW!

So moody and juicy! Love the high contrast and glowing lights in the rain.

I thought your sunlit boats were my favorites, but now I think these moody, rainy city streets resonant even more with me.

WOW,this is so good Catherine! The car's coming straight at you! Were you right in front of this car? :)

Thanks for all of your comments. Yes Ramesh, I often stand in the middle of the road to take pictures...with my husband standing guard to let me know when I must get out of the way!

This one really resonates with me. That huge streetcar barreling right at the viewer is so awesome.

I think these latest series of paintings are your best Catherine!
The darks are wonderful!
And yes, I get to stand in the middle of the road with a camera too..its the only way! ;-)
