Painting #13 – 8 Fraser

Starting into the second half of my project, I decided to challenge myself to paint a highly detailed street scene of a Flyer trolley bus in the centre of an intersection. Thanks to David Lam for providing the source photograph; it was a great shot. The challenge with painting from a highly detailed photograph is to find the balance between detail and noise. The details make a painting, but they can also overwhelm it. Especially things like overhead wires and leaves on trees.

I really enjoyed the process of painting this image, and it will definitely be hanging in my exhibition this February. More details on that to come in another post.

Acrylic on wood. 48 x 24 inches.
