Battery Park Series: #3, The Colgate Clock

I thought it would be nice to show my set up on location.  Tourists and passer byes are always curious about what I'm doing and I end up in a lot of photographs.  It's part of being an outdoor painter, also called "plein air painter".
This painting had a rough commute home, my carrying devise fell apart and as a result it got a lot of smudges and marks, I think it gives it character.
I hope the people on the train who got paint on their clothes are not too unhappy with me.

Oil on canvas.  6 x 12

  1. Cool. It is nice to see both your painting and a picture of the actual scene, including your easel.
