Munjoy Rooftops

Munjoy Rooftops
16 x 20, acrylic

Here's my latest effort. This is Portland's Munjoy Hill, based on a photo I took about 2:30 in the afternoon this past Tuesday from the waterfront parking lot across from the Forest Avenue Hannaford store. I love these old houses. Love the sight of them crowded together, a multitude of lines and angles, light and shadows, value and color contrasts, climbing the hill toward the eastern sky. On this particular day, the entire hillside was awash in warm afternoon light.

All told, this took me probably about ten hours to complete.
