    I'm sorry I haven't replied sooner, but reading this really made my day, thank you so much!

    Very slowly, with a very tiny brush. Thank you very much!

    Slow work! Even a small painting like this makes me more than a month to finish.

    Wow, thank you so much! Not only for the gold, but after a long tedious day of painting, reading thoughtful comments like this really is a boost of energy, the motivation I need to put me back in painting mode. Thank you again, I dedicate todays painting session to you!

    This one might be my favorite of the series yet! Very impressive when you consider how superb the rest of your work is

    Nailed it! Right down the street from the Woodman museum (third brick building from left)

    Thank you, I've been drawing my whole life (27 years). Started getting really into acrylic paints around 2010 and oil painting a year or 2 later.

    I have a pretty simple approach, I put down the background first, (sky in this case) then the basic shapes and dark colors. After that its all details from there, working my way down through a series of smaller and smaller brushes.
