Featured Illustration: Chapel Street

Chapel Street is one of my favorite places in New Haven, CT. I have a lot of fond memories there. It only seemed right to commemorate that in a painting. Like the Highline I kept this one loose and didn't sketch. There is an abstract look to it as well. The main idea was not to get bogged down in fine detail. I wanted to paint just enough to catch my viewers eyes but not overwhelm them. All in all I am very pleased with this one and look forward to experimenting with this style.
