Today I went to Glens Falls to take three paintings to a show, I like to stop and paint there, because of scenes like this. I know there not the most commercially viable subjects but I love them anyway.
#467 Shermantown Rd. Glens Falls.
9 x 12
It's hard to find a big clear view of these majestic industrial places, or it is for me, so I sniffed this one out.
The sky was cool with the smokestack making it's own cloud.
Not many colors.
There is not a dot on the painting.
Here is where I ended up.
Here is the sight-size shot. Even I was surprised at how little color was present, but little is more than none.
The scene toward the middle of a 1 1/4 hour session. by the end I had cloud cover and lost the drama, the brightness of the sun off the vapor....
I love finding a remote location in an urban industrial zone, This ia on a berm with recently planted pines and the cement plant is to my back., Close by is the feeder canal trail, which I've painted along before, cool.
