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.

OTR, Cincinnati

Here’s my latest painting of Cincinnati. This one is a little bit different as my focus isn’t on the skyline, but a city street in the beautiful city. I wanted to capture OTR in this bold, impressionistic style. There’s a lot of energy downtown now, especially in this area, and wanted to bring that to life with a brush and some paints.

Cincy in July

Here’s a progress capture of our latest commission painting titled, Cincinnati in July. This is a rather large painting which were working in black and white. It’s fun to paint in greyscale, however when you have something as magical as the city of Cincinnati you have to make sure you have the right contrast between those multiple shades of grey tones to really make it pop. Looking forward to finishing this one up very soon.

Cincinnati Skyline

Here’s final capture of our latest painting of the Cincinnati Skyline inspired by the view from across the Ohio River in Covington Kentucky. To just stand there and soak in all the colors in the buildings reflecting and dancing into the water is a treat to the eyes. This is seriously one of my favorite portraits of the city so far.  Looking forward to rocking the next one.

This is now the fifth painting from this vantage point. You can check out these earlier paintings that lead up to this piece, Cincinnati in DecemberCincinnati Brilliance Cincinnati in July and Cincinnati in April
