dwntwn to el porto commisoned

This composition was completed yesterday the 14th of September.  The customer Kyle Kupcheck a high school Friend of mine wanted it to be "one shot Aqua"  So i mixed it with red to get my complementary color on hence the subtle grey blend in corner.  Also the customer wanted images of dwntwn LA Venice beach and El Porto  Using One shot as a background makes it take 3x as long to make cause of the drying time.  2 of these were made at once both are 36''x20'' in. on wood box.  My favorite part of making this is when I was stuck with a large negative space on far right of painting.  I browsed through my screens and Corey Millers aka toomucfire "Sandman Motel" image was on a screen with a landing plane in the background.  I tilted the screen so the plane appears to be taking off instead of landing mixed a warm grey one pull and it was history.  More of Corey's work can be seen here "venice beach crime watch" type by Mark Of the Beast.
