The red coat- sold


Oil on panel, 8" x 8"
This is a quick sketch for a larger piece. I loved all the bits of red that popped up here and there. If you've ever been to New York in the winter, you know that almost everyone wears black. Those who don't are wearing gray or navy blue. So, my thanks to that one renegade woman who decided to wear red.

Like a touch, a fantastic memory of art history -- Childe Hassam's flag painting series, or Pissarro's Montmartre series.

What a delight this one is!

This is so very fresh and the colors are beautiful.
I'm amazed at the composition. A street scene of tall buildings in a square format that works beautifully is truly impressive.

I am thinking the coat is cad red and it works beautifully in this painting. The action of color spots makes this paintng just sing. Love it.

Yup - I was the one in the WHITE coat there last month (actually I counted three of us)! I am so into city scenes right now, and I love this one!
