Boston from Hayden Library – wip

I’m working just between MIT’s Hayden Library and the river. This 11×14 oil paint on linen is slowly progressing, I need a few early evenings with the right amount of sunset. It’s been too cloudy or rainy but this coming weekend is looking good.

Again . . . really? I don’t normally paint this way. Charles River Basin

 Another gorgeous summer morning, spent overlooking the Charles River.I think one more visit to finally resolve the guard rails and then to the studio to add a composite element – some classical? runners? This is 20×24 inch linen canvas. Yesterday I spent time in the studio . . .

Again, back to the Longfellow Bridge. (with a better shot)

Trying to suggested while avoiding the finickiness of guardrails has meant return visits to my spot overlooking the Charles. I’m not bored yet, but the painting’s not resolved yet. Now how do I paint the cars?  a runner or three perhaps? They just don’t pose!

Back in Boston – back to the Longfellow Bridge – WIP

A wonderful walk and two hours of painting time, but who forgot to restock my bag of gear? no rags! sigh, there are always work arounds. The painting is still a work in progress, looks like Sunday will be a good day to return.
