The photo above is the finished painting of the Williamsburg County Courthouse, Williamsburg, Virginia which I have been working on for several weeks. The real key to completing a commission painting is to please the owner of the painting and keep the painting true to my style. I'm very pleased with all aspects of this landscape having taken enough artistic license to accentuate the background trees to allow the building to fit into a "space" and not just sit on a paved parking lot. In a landscape painting the sunlight determines all the elements of the sketch, the sky, the deep shadows, and just how white the whites really are. This grand old building deserves to be displayed in all of its original glory and grandeur and I hope this painting does it justice.
