It feels great to finish a painting, especially when you receive a testimonial like the one below. Just received the feedback after delivering this painting of the Cincinnati skyline.
“We are absolutely pleased and enlightened with the beauty of the Roebling Bridge and the Cincinnati Skyline that is brought to life In this original acrylic painting by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty. Captured in vivid color and detail, a date stamp for this night has been created in this one of a kind painting. This artistic work is the focal point of our renovated condo on the Ohio River. We, and guests, will enjoy exploring this work for many years to come.”
Giving the gift of art is always amazing! Here’s a photo of the proud recipient of one of our latest commissioned paintings titled, The Roebling Bridge | A Kentucky Perspective #JJCD#JeffJohns#ColinDaugherty
Who’s up for a challenge? We are…Ha! That’s for sure as we gear up to paint this amazing view of Cincinnati that I personally grew up with. Here’s the reference visual for the next commission painting, titled, View from Devou Park | Cincinnati. And yep, it’ll be in black and white.
Black and white paintings, are they easier? Well you don’t have to mix all the different colors, however the hard part is getting the shades of grey to separate.
Stay tuned for progress on this painting that’ll be titled, View from Devou Park, Cincinnati Skyline | 30″ X 48″ acrylic on canvas by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty
We’ve been jamming away nights and weekends on this mural painting for Delta Airlines. The project we started in early August is getting closer to completion. This painting of the Cincinnati Skyline landscape is actually on the walls of the CVG Customer Engagement Center in downtown Cincinnati. The piece is 22 feet wide long wall is over 9 feet tall.
This piece will be titled, Delta, Great American Ball Park at Night | 255″ x 115″ acrylic and mixed medium on wall by Jeff Johns and Colin Daugherty.
Excited to announce that we’ve landed an entirely new painting commission from Delta Airlines. We will be painting a Cincinnati Skyline landscape onto the walls of the CVG Customer Engagement Center in downtown Cincinnati. This 22 feet wide long wall is over 9 feet tall and will be covered with paint from floor to ceiling depicting the beautiful city of Cincinnati and magical waters of the Ohio River.
Throughout the Delta mural selection process we worked up several digital compositions of what the wall could look like with our paintings in place. Below are a few which were shared in the early rounds of the selection process. We also worked up images that included the tristate, and even versions with airplanes flying over the city which are not indicated below. In the end the painting above was selected as the inspiration to drive this mural.
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.
Here are three Cincinnati Skyline pieces from 2015 that I am trying to get published in the Communication Arts Illustration Annual. So, fingers-crossed. I’ll find out more in a few months so stay tuned.
