"River Oaks theatre"
oil on gessobord
A scene from Houston, this is a very old, cozy theatre in River Oaks. By night it is the eyecatcher of the street.
I like to paint nocturnals. For me it works best to paint from a blurry picture so I don't get into the details too much. If I make the picture I really try to remember how the darks look, I try to make a mental picture and try to decide what the most attractive part is.
I like the reflective lights, those few strokes on the cars have a lot of impact.
