I have been working on a large 6 feet by 4 feet commission painting for the past couple months. I am finally coming to the end of it. I still managed to paint a few landscapes and one portrait. but only now do I find the time to post my landscapes.
This landscape painting was executed in plein air. I live in california about 20 minutes from Petaluma. This particular street scene is located next to a canal. This is the old part of the town, with cobble stones. I particularly like to introduce figures in landscape paintings. A lot of tourists and locals walk around and visit the cafes in this area. It was difficult to capture people while they were walking, but thanks to my many years of figure studies, it came out alright.
