Cincinnati Skyline | A View from Riverside Terrace

RiversideTerrace_smallHere’s the final capture of this painting titled, Cincinnati Skyline, A View from Riverside Terrace. This painting was originally kicked off back in mid September after being invited to this beautiful living space in Riverside Terrace and asked to replicate the view from our client’s balcony.

After nearly five months of working this painting, Colin and myself have finally decided it is finished. I have to say that after all the skyline scenes we’ve painted this one has to be near the top of our list due to the fact that so many of the iconic structures in the city of Cincinnati are featured in this work of art. One of my personal favorites is the Roebling Bridge and fro this vantage point it takes up nearly the left side of the canvas. Colin’s favorite structure in the city is the Great American Building and stadium and those truly glow in this piece adding constant excitement from left to right of the painting.

We’re thrilled to be finally finished with this painting and looking forward to our client seeing it in person for the very first time. Hope you enjoy too!

Here’s one of the latest commission paintings of Cincinnati we’ve been rocking. This painting in particular was commissioned by a local running enthusiast.

Walnut Street, Cincinnati (in progress)

WalnutStreet

We love to paint the the city of Cincinnati. Generally if you check out our work most of our paintings focus on the skyline however, over the last few months we decided to get into the city and bring some street scenes to life.

The first city scene was a capture of OTR Cincinnati by Jeff Johns. You can view that painting here. After sharing this with the world it was sold instantly.

After a new client saw that piece they were inspired to capture a street in which they lived with a focus of the building they reside in. We then captured reference images of the street to provide a range of directions for final selection. Below you can check out the photography captured to inspire this painting. See if you can find the client select visual!

While this is just a start of the progress, it’s fun to share so you can see the painting come to life. Stay tuned as we’re looking forward to sharing the final painting in the near future.

Pink Ribbon Luncheon | Cincinnati 2015

PinktheTownIt was an honor to be featured artists “live painting” the 2015 Pink Ribbon Luncheon, Cincinnati at the Duke Energy Convention Center this year. Such a great experience to meet so many people and showcase our true passion for painting with others and to top it off, a percentage proceeds from sales went to support breast cancer care.

We started to gear up for the event by working on a cityscape painting of the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline. We worked it in grey-scale first then decided to add pink and really Pink the Town.

What an event, not only did we support such a good cause, we also met a ton of great people and make some really strong connections while doing what we love to do, and that’s paint the beautiful Cincinnati Skyline.

St. Johns and Cincinnati | Acrylic on Canvas

St. Johns and Cincinnati Here’s the latest on the painting I’ve been rocking for my wife and I. This painting captures everything we love about the city. The church we were married in, Paul Brown Stadium on a Monday Night Football evening and of course the amazing skyline.

There’s about fifteen hours left until this piece will be complete. My plan is to tighten up the buildings in the skyline, add some color and form to the houses under the skyline and treat the expressway like a time lapse photo with blurred lines of traffic to really add some color and boldness to the piece.

Stay tuned for the final piece. Once it’s complete, I’ll take a nice photo with the DSLR and post.

Enjoy! Jeff
