New Orleans – Two Featured Art Prints

I did my New Orleans series years ago (before Katrina…yes that long ago) and chose a gothic oil technique for the entire series. This technique focuses on bold brush strokes and earth tone colors creating an old world look. This type of style compliments the “old world” atmosphere of the French Quarters. Whether it’s just people watching, enjoying the architecture of the area or the great food, there is always something to do in the Big Easy. From that series, I am highlighting two of my favorites, New Orleans Cafe and Balcony Cafe. These two seem to always get purchased as pairs as they do compliment each other very well. Thoughts?

I invite you to stop in and browse through the rest of the New Orleans collection. The series is located within my Street Scenes/People Gallery.

New Orleans Outdoor Cafe – Featured Art Print

During the same trip to New Orleans that I mentioned in my earlier post on the New Orleans Victorian house, I came across this scene from a balcony across the street. If this doesn’t say New Orleans, I don’t know what does. I absolutely loved the look and feel of this scene. I have taken this scene and used it as a basis for an oil print and a watercolor. As I do with a lot of my photographs, I look at them in black and white to see what I get. I had the same result with this one as I did with the Victorian house. There was something there in the black and white, but just not enough depth for what I was envisioning. Doing this scene with a sketching technique brought out so many details and gave it added dimension. Even all these years later, this is one of my personal favorites in my sketching collection. Thoughts?

 

I invite you to come into the gallery to view the new additions to the collection in Black and White Sketches.
