Glendale Industrial Sketch 2 colored

I got some time tonight to paint this sketch
in photoshop . I had fun with the color pallette
using a pthalo turquoise tint for the color scheme
and pushed that acidic green building for an industrial feel.
I also added the transformers to the tower platform
and lettering to the building so that it looked more

Yosemite Cropped

This is probably a stronger composition.

Yosemite Valley Revisited

6"x 7" gouache with photoshop. I painted the piece on
the left at yosemite back in 2000 and retouched it in photoshop
today on the right. The painting on the left was more
visually accurate while the one on the right is what it
felt like. I felt that in order to get that impression for the right
time of day the color atmospere had to be pushed as well
as some shapes.

Glendale Alley

The painting on the left was an earlier post
that was painted at about the same location
as yesturday's post. Although the painting looks
desolate, this location has to be the busiest spot
i've painted at with cement trucks constantly
moving by every 30 seconds.
