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.

Cincinnati in January

Here’s the first few captures 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. It’s always a pleasure to try and capture this same experience at the home studio with a paint brush in hand.

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.

Stay tuned as we continue to share the progress on this painting. We’re looking to finish it by the first week of December.

Under the Suspension, Cincinnati

UnderTheSuspension3Here’s a start on this latest commissioned painting of the Cincinnati skyline titled, Under the Suspension. This is the third rendition of this painting and really looking forward to seeing how it shapes up. Super excited to be working from this reference again as the perspective of being under the bridge and actually on the river really draws you into the city and perches you right under all the magical lights of Cincinnati.

Testimonial on latest painting.

12814710_10207130701164034_4257797675821309007_nIt’s rewarding to finish a painting. But the real joy comes from getting a note like this.

“I truly adore this painting. It is my favorite piece, and that’s saying a lot because you know we have some good artwork. Can’t wait to always have a piece of Cincinnati with us as we move.” ~ Tegan

Now that’s saying a lot because they have a Leonid Afremov painting. One of my favorite artist for intense use of color.

The photo above is the painting hanging in the new owners home. Y0u can check out a high quality image of the painting here.

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 10,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
