View of North Broadway, 7:00 pm


14"x11", oil on linen, NFS
I did this one hour sketch as a farewell demo for the gang in art/design dept. of BSS last week - looking right through the window on the 11th Fl of the Studio. It's a quick record ( I was racing to catch up with the changing light ) of the feel of the sunset view over Broadway at White Plains which I've been looking at every single working day in the past 3 plus years. Ciao, Soon!

I was there. He really finished this in 30 minutes. Last thirty minutes were just detailing and him talking about the process. Legend.

Bluesky will miss your mastery Jie. I love this painting btw. memories of that freezing cold walk to the studio pop in (altho it's obviously a beautiful day you captured here). Best of luck on your new ventures my friend.

Always breathtaking, Jie.

What do you mean farewell? are you leaving BSS?

Fantastic Painting! You captured the light and the moment. Isn't painting the best!

JeN said...

Wow Jie. All of your paintings are breath-taking. I'm so inspired to set aside me tablet, get away from my computer, and just paint. I can actually say that I miss the smell and the mess of oil paints. :)
You make it look so easy. Thanks for the inspiration!

todd keller-um...sure! i likes. said...

Awesome light, love the color you caught as the sun is hitting the rightside buildings, very nice. i also like the holes of sun peaking through and hitting the trees and ground beneath, great display, thanks!
