"Nocturnal Cloud Gate" - 12" x 16" oil painting on stretched canvas
This week's challenge on "Different Strokes from Different Folks"... "Cloud Gate" (also called "the bean") is an awesome sculpture which resides in Millennium Park in Chicago. The daytime reference photo can be seen on Karin's site. I decided to translate my 'bean' into night viewing with lights abound on the night skyline. I have been craving to paint a nocturnal scene, so I made this one 'at night'. It was another surprisingly fun one to paint! Also, you can read Charley Parker's article about Karin's new blog here.
