"Pike Place Downpour" Seattle city oil painting by Robin Weiss

"Pike Place Downpour"  20x16 oil on linen  $1200

A different look for me but one of my favorite pieces in the featured artist show at the Michael Birawer Gallery in Seattle.
It started out in the usual manner of painting for me but was not working very well. Had no spark or excitement. I got frustrated and grabbed the big palette knife thinking I would just scrape it off and start over. As I was pulling the paint off it started to get the atmosphere that I originally wanted to convey. I carefully kept removing pigment skirting around some areas. After that I went back in and worked edges and contrast in the key focal areas.
