south of the tracks

This scene was painted en plein aire in 1000000 degree heat. The paint wanted to dry even before I put my brush in it.The building faces are done with metallic copper and gold. I used waterford 140 lb cold pressed paper, with lkots of golden acrylic polymer to increase the drying time.

Re: south of the tracks

I enjoyed your painting very much. What I really like is the way you utilized simple symbolic strokes to suggest cars, etc., letting our mind fill in the blanks. Good job.
