View from pavilion at Devou Park, Covington, KY

This is one of my go to locations for when I’m in the mood for a wide city view from a distance. I have my sketch, let’s set the easel up and start painting!

I found a shady spot…let’s get some paint on this panel!
We have most of the underpainting worked out. The lights and darks of concrete/glass towers can be tricky…every time a cloud moves, EVERYTHING changes. I’m hoping for some dramatic light before we start with the color. That’s asking a lot at 4pm, but you never know what may happen when painting outside in the wild!
We are at that awkward stage of the painting, where everything is crazy looking, and I’m questioning all my life choices. Starting with, “what was I thinking?!”. I’ll either pull it together and it will be amazing, or I’ll wipe the panel clean. Either way, it’s been a nice day up at the park. Stay tuned
Progress report. No tears (yet), and it’s coming together
That’s a wrap!!! Had a beautiful day!
Our finished oil painting!!! Had a great time…now time to get some food and head back to old Washington. Thanks for painting with me!
