Two from Taughannock Falls!

I did 2 paintings after visiting Taughannock Falls near Ithaca. The digital versions do not reflect the real paintings which look better in real life. The first one has gone to the framers!

First plein aire sketch!

Today Imspent sometime in CassPark, Ithaca and made a small painting of a nice tree with lots of boats in front. It took 2 hours to finish and I am morethan happy. The secret is I have already done 2 paintings of the same spot albeit from photos, making this one special!

Big Ben

This is the view of the Big Ben from the Thames south bank. Though the buildings seem to have leaning problem no such thing in the painting, this is the way it is photographed causing the problem.
