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.

Music Hall

MusicHall_Hero_smallThis piece is finally complete and has to be one the first paintings of Music Hall that captures the entirely new facade. A few features include newly reopened windows and elaborate painted black bricks that accent the red bricks on the building. Really great work to the teams at Messer, PWWG and 3CDC and the rest of the project team for bringing to life the new face of Music Hall which was such an inspiration to paint.

It was an honor for myself and Colin to paint this key icon in the city of Cincinnati since 1876. This is our second painting of Music Hall, click here to see the first which captured the Lumenocity event from a few years back.

Cincy in July

CincyinJuly

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 in April

CincinnatiinApril_lqHere’s the latest commissioned painting, titled Cincinnati in April. Really enjoying painting this perspective of the Cincinnati Skyline because it truly captures the essence of the city’s most iconic structures. The vivid Ohio River draws your eye right up to the beautiful Suspension bridge on the left of the canvas framed by the Great American building and ballpark to the right of the canvas. The symmetry of the city is spectacular from this vantage point, which is likely why this is the third painting from this perspective and we’re starting a new one next week.
