Hi Folks,
This painting is 12x 16 on 300# Arches cold pressed paper and it is based on a photo I shot in San Francisco. Mostly painted with Holbein Artist's Gouache. This is my second attempt at Gouache and my first post in this forum. I look forward to your C&C.:wave::wave:
Regards,
Greg

Ooh, nice one. Obviously I'm a fan of this sort of thing.But I would've included all the bus - shifted the viewpoint to the right somewhat. This would've meant losing the Bakery part, but I feel it would be better. Or, maybe I would've shifted the bus forward, therefore obscuring the mural thing... I dunno, it's just a feeling I have.
I hope these comments are taken as not only constructive criticism, but just my opinion...
