Interpretations

I am participating in the SCVWS show Interpretations. 
It's my first ever and I am happy about it! They are exhibiting at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library in San Jose, California. Do drop by to check it out, they have a great collection of paintings for sale. The show is on until August end.


For my entry to the show, I painted this one again, this time changing some of colors a bit. Apologies for the extremely bad photograph, took it in a rush just before dropping off the painting!!

Amsterdam, after sunset

 It was winter evening, and the painting does have a dark, heavy mood to it- However, there is still something missing & I am not sure what it is. Maybe I should show some light in the windows & entrances?! And something about the water too..


I tried painting it a second time, wanted to add more texture to the water, added some more warmer colors, but messed it up. I think the first attempt was better :)
