|"Main & Virginia”|
Watercolor 8” x 10”

I was recently commissioned to paint a watercolor painting of the section of Main Street near Virginia Street in Buffalo NY. There are a number of interesting buildings in this part of town that made it interesting to paint. The tall steeple in the background is St Louis Roman Catholic church. The Scientology building is the off white building in front of it. The series of five buildings in the foreground are known as The Granite Works which is a mix of apartments and commercial space.
The reference photos for this painting were taken in early November and the weather that day was unusually warm–I could have worn shorts. I spent most of the day taking pictures of downtown Buffalo. Many of the trees still had their leaves so that added some warm colors to the painting.
