Walnut Street, Cincinnati

WalnutStreet_Small

After many hours this painting titled Walnut Street, Cincinnati is now complete. The piece started from our client seeing the portfolio of Cincinnati paintings on this site and wanted to capture the neighborhood in which they live, our luck it was beautiful Walnut Street right downtown Cincinnati. We were able to capture the Aronoff Center, all the bars and restaurants and the glowing lights leading you through this unique perspective of the city.

To kick off the project, I headed down to photograph the street scene from several different angles which you can see here so our client could pick the lead. The best part about this process was that I avoided getting hit by a bus or heaven forbid the streetcar. Once the lead reference visual was selected it was time to start rocking the painting.

My guess is we have over 100 hours combined on this piece. The neat thing about this piece and all the paintings we work on is that we start the piece in it’s entirety, then I’ll take the left side of the painting, Colin will work the right until we meet in the middle. Then we’ll flip the canvas vertically and put the finishing touches on both sides to cary each of our styles throughout. The new owners are really excited about the piece and here’s a few photos of it proudly on display in their home.

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.

OTR, Cincinnati

OTRCincy_SML

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.
