Painting of the Week

Painting of the Week – Fargo Blues

Fargo Blues

The Fargo Street Fair starts today and I will not be there this year. It is great to miss the work of setting up my booth, but I will truly miss seeing you. Enjoy the fair but please don’t look for my booth.

Over the years, I painted several cityscapes of downtown Fargo in the warm red tones. Fargo Blues is a cool dominant painting. In my watercolor class this week, we worked at using atmospheric effects that create distance.  Using aerial perspective, objects were painted lighter and cooler in the distance or warmer and darker of it in the foreground. In Fargo Blues, the underlying grid adds the impression of additional distant buildings.
