“Seattle Skyline at Sunset” oil on canvas

“Seattle Skyline at Sunset” is finally finished! It will be varnished, framed then given to the Boys and Girls Club of Spokane for their annual silent art auction and fundraising gala next month. Seattle was the place my hubs and I spent our honeymoon long ago. We had dinner in the Space Needle and watched fireworks on the 4th from across the bay. It was so much fun seeing all the sights. I hope there will be someone in the audience who has fond memories of Seattle and likes my work! 👍🏻😊

The end of a painting is the best part for me since that’s when all the vibrant highlights are put on. These colors are lovely and I hated cleaning them off my palette! Here’s a straight view of the 18″ x 24″ painting on my easel:

Seattle skyline – Work in progress

I’ve been busy working on an oil painting of the Seattle skyline. This piece is my donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Spokane for their annual fund raising gala in February. It’s always a challenge for me to paint skylines because my handwriting naturally slants to the left. I find my buildings do the same. Very weird!

I’m using a modified Zorn palette as the skyline is depicting sunset with overhead clouds.

I’m hoping there will be a former Seattle resident in the audience and that this piece will bring in a good size donation for this wonderful entity. 😊👍🏻
