Cornices and Sky

 

A series of impressionistic architectural images taken from an abstracted perspective of the Boston Wharf Company warehouse buildings in Fort Point.  These paintings are composed in an exaggerated vertical proportion (16x38).  The tops of the buildings are the subject matter contrasting the warm colors of the bricks and cast iron cornice work with the blue of the sky. Gouache was used extensively in the sky to add to this contrast the difference between glowing transparent washes in the buildings and the opaque rendered sky. The theme was capturing and illustrating a personality to these buildings. I imagine them walking around below the viewers perspective and peeking up into the frame.
