St Matthew’s at Dusk


St Matthew’s at Dust 12″ x 16″ acrylic on canvas, framed by the artist

St Matthew’s at Dusk started as a Live Living Network demo, part of my Online Demo series. It is a rare acrylic painting by me. I usually prefer oils. But most people think acrylics is easier (it isn’t). It requires an accurate sense of value, no room for experimentation. True, one can add layers more easily but if one knows how to use oils well, layering isn’t a problem.

This painting is effective because of my control of values. The lights were the last thing to be painted, turning a dull street scene into a wonderland of delight. Click the Online Demo link above to paint it yourself. I painted a more "finished" version of this image in oils, the original of which is sold. I prefer the sketchiness of this earlier, "quick and dirty" version.
