Green Derby

SOLD to a collector in Laramie, WY
This 20x21" pastel was a commission I drew from a tiny and very yellowed photograph. The building suggests the 50's, most of the cars are from the 70's except the car reflected in the window. I only agreed to accept this challenge if I could put in colors as I chose fit and delete items on the sidewalk which I felt were distracting. I always paint & draw vertically on my wall. To ease the linear perspective challenges, I nailed two 6-foot straight edges to the wall & pivoted them to get the angles correct.

Good perspective and color choices. I would like to visit Wyoming someday.
