Original Oil Paintings by Texas Artist Leslie Sealey
I like this picture too
Fantastic Leslie - it just blew me away. Can I be very nosey and ask you what your palette was? (if I'm being too nosey just ignore me)
Hi Sheila,It's not so much about the palette as keeping the whole painting fairly low-chroma and almost monochromatic. That way, any touches of more intense color stand out (like the highlights around the billboard). I think it was mostly flake white, burnt umber, ivory black, and some touches of ultramarine blue and alizarin...
Reminds me of places I've had to perform labor, when all I really wanted to do was kick back and take in the aesthetics of the situation, which is just what you have provided here. Nice.
Thanks Leslie, you manage those greys perfectly though. They are never dull.
Thanks A.D.! The most unlikely places are beautiful when the lighting is right.
Hi Sheila,I love mostly grey or monochromatic paintings with just a touch of color...I always seem to revisit that theme.
Due to your last reply to Sheila, I was reminded of Regis Pettinari.
Good call on Regis Pettinari; I really like his work!
love your haunting urban environments!jason andreawww.jasonandrea-studio.com
I appreciate the comment, Jason. Overall, I think the urban landscapes represent my strongest work, so thanks for the encouragement!
You are a softer and gentler William Wray. Nice work.
I like Wm. Wray's take on urban landscapes and I'm often drawn to similar subjects. What a nice compliment-thanks!
Whoops, didn't check before posting...that was me, accidentally used hubby's profile to comment. ;- )
