Paintings From Summer 2013

Below are paintings I have done during the last couple of weeks of this summer 2013. The immediate painting below is the last painting I did this summer. It is of Boulevard Diderot in Paris. The next painting I did on location in Switzerland. We were up in the mountains and you could see the Alps off in the distant. Although I live in California and have seen high mountains in the Eastern Sierras, I also appreciate the Alps because of their own unique beauty. Click on any image to see a larger view.

The painting below is Boulevard Diderot in Paris at sunset. 
This is a view based on a photo I took from the window of my hotel room.

The painting below is a study for a larger painting I plan to do. It is in Crystal Cove state park in Orange County, CA. Part of the movie "Beaches" was filmed in this cottage.

This painting I did one morning in Newport Beach, CA before I went to work.

This painting is from a photo I took in Paris this summer while walking across a bridge over the Seine. 

Below is a sketch I did of a person walking in Regents Park in London

This is also a sketch of a woman leaving the Metro in Paris on a rainy day. I shot the photo from my hotel room like the street scene above. 

Below is Notre Dame in the rain.

This is a street in the town where Versaille is located. Click on image to see a larger view.
