Capitol Dome Nocturne

oil/board sold

So much for new subject matter. Went back to the same place as previous spot but at night. I thought it might be interesting to do a nocturne there. It was pouring rain,yet I was sheltered very nicely in the sprinter. Opened the side door and proceeded to paint. Had fun with this and am really appreciating the van. I think it was a good decision to buy it. I've included a photo with the light setup.

I've reshot the painting in natural light.

Nice work... I wish I could be as loose with my brush strokes and get that much feeling behind them. The colors used also work really well.
