Eye Has Seen

What the eye has seen is truth…

La Rue de la Ville Bree, Saint Martin, United Kingdom

My second acrylic, just submitted to Virtual Paintout.  This is another Google Streetview painting (you can find the original here), taken from a little town in the northeast part of the island of Jersey, off the coast of France. Although the island is part of the U.K., all the city and street names reflect the island’s French pedigree. As a descendent of both French and English, I can relate, so to speak.

This seemed to be a particularly tough Paintout. The streets are so narrow that many of the more attractive scenes are blownout on the bottom half, rendering them useless for painting (unless that’s the look you’re going for).

I can see that my work is improving, but I have a long way to go.

    Refreshingly unusual street scene. Those curves really catch my eye. I admire the subtlty of color you’ve achieved, ’cause I’ve tried that with acrylics and it ain’t easy. Good work.
