Rough Alameda...

Hey everyone. I have been busy working on this mini-series for a show coming up very soon. It's for the Frank Bette Center For The Arts in Alameda.

The show is called

En Plein Air: Alameda and Beyond

and it will run from

August 5 - October 1

Rather than follow what the usual protocol is for a plein air painting exhibition, which is; find the prettiest areas of the location, try to paint the best painting you can in two hours, do it about 5 more times, and hope to walk away with an award and sales; I decided to do something different. I've thought about what is interesting about Alameda to me, and it is the industrial areas with all of the machinery, textures and grit of the warehouses, and the coastal atmosphere.  I focused on the broken down areas because I've found that you don't usually see these types of subjects done with a typical plein air technique. All of the intricacies of the industrial subjects allow for an addition of fine detail I don't normally indulge in. These are all 6x8 inch paintings on linen board, done either completely in plein air, photo, or a mix of the two. I did 8 paintings for this series, but the show only calls for six.

Edit: The Votes Have Been Tallied!
