Here is my finished studio painting as well as the original plein air. I liked the way the building seems isolated and stretching up toward the sky. You don't find many buildings situated like this in Manhattan. Of course I was first drawn to the arched copper cornice.

50x36 :eek: That's one big painting! That must be very commanding IRL especially because of the subject and vertical comp....it must seem huge! Really nice work on the studio version and attention to many little details that make this so interesting to look at!

Thanks Jan. I know the composition in simple, so I hope the subtle details keep it interesting. And yes, the size helps.

Painting buildings that big requires a lot of detail and you have certainly painted the detail very well. Love the stone work at the top of the building. CHAMMI

Thanks Chammi. I wanted to paint the detail without becoming so tight that it was just an architectural rendering. I wanted to keep a painterly feel.
