Oil sketch for a commission

st-pauls-corner-sketchI did this oil sketch on gessoed watercolor paper to show a client what their commissioned painting might look like, in terms of a composition. It's a view of St Paul's Episcopal Church at the corner of  Clinton and President Streets. It was also an excellent exercise for determining the shape of canvas to recommend (square), and I got a feel for how the light hits the asymmetrical, stone building. I had fun playing with the warm tones vs. the cool, shadowed ones.  I'll post my work on it in "Works in Progress", so stay tuned!
