Acrylic on Canvas, 36" wide x 30" tall.
This is the Lonsdale Quay/Seabus View of Vancouver based (very liberally) on Syberpat's Vancity Core shot
. The classic Vancouver elements are the sails of Canada Place as well as the Sears (Harbor Center) tower on the left. I took a lot of liberties with the overall architecture as well as with the colors, which I wanted to be crayon-bright for some reason.
Sad story on this one and a good lesson with acrylics: I was *almost done* back in early Dec. and was just sanding down some of those annoying acrylic bumps that develop. I decided I would rinse the dusty residue off faster in the sink: who knew the acrylic would peel off in SHEETS like that?
So this is actually the second version of the same painting since I accidentally and entirely rinsed off version #1, which I suspect was a cosmic statement that it just wasn't good enough or something. Anyway, here it is, repainted, recolored, and now I can go on to the next, whatever that is.
