Dusk at Upper and High

oil on board 24"x30"


This painting was started in late 2018 and worked on through March 2019. There were several days it was overcast, frigid, and windy so progress was slow. I was first inclined to paint here early on in June as I admired the view of 21C, the building with arched windows on the upper stories that is barely visible now due to the new construction. I waited too long to return and this is what was visible at the time. However, I also find this incredibly engaging.

I knew it was time to wrap this painting up when they completed hanging the first row of the glass facade. I tried very hard to capture the ever changing color relationships as dusk raced over the skyline .. this painting for me is all about that fleeting, transitional light.
