Was this building painted from life? Are you doing a series of environments for a gallery show? I really like your recent work, it makes me want to go out and sketch from life.

I like this piece, but it does seem very similar to your last painting. Also, I would love to see more color to the piece. The birds really add life to it.

looks great, like always!

I love the mood going on in the alley. Looks a lot more restrained than the others I've seen in terms of color...

Thanks for all the feedback. I went on locations and shot reference,I wish I could paint on the spot but thats hard environment to be in.Its in downtown and i likes the shapes the birds would make when they flew across the side of the building. after I was halfway done I realized that my composition is the same or very similar to two of my other paintings. So next time wild angles will be everywhere.

there is nothing wrong with a series- especially in gallery work- so do more if you want to.

I agree with Ted- nothing wrong with a series, I saw the similarities in the paintings as intentional

Hey Brooker. I just have to say I'm really loving your work. It's very interesting (and inspiring)to see you move from mostly figurative work to cityscapes. And although compositionally the two pieces are similar, the mood and emotions they evoke are very different. Very beautiful.

I really like your art, I check your blog daily, but it wont allow me to leave comments. You can only leave them if your a blogger. Are you able to change that? I'd also like to see some of your process work, maybe you could post pics of your paintings in progress? Keep up the good work, its very inspiring.
