Back on April 6, 2014, I posted some small paintings I did of the New School building in New York City. I can’t seem to get enough of this building. So here I go again with another larger, abstract version of it. I’m just living with the painting for now, waiting for it to tell me if it’s finished or not. Let me know what you think. Stop or keep going? Suggestions? Thank you in advance for your input.
“New School Refractions”, Acrylic on Panel, 24″ x 30″.
I’m learning to abstract urban subjects in my abstract painting class. The assignment was to take one photo of something in the city and paint three different compositions using only a small section of the same photo. These three paintings are of the New School in Manhattan on Fifth Avenue and 13th Street. I love the wacky windows on this building. I’ve included my reference photo next to each painting. See you figure out which small area of this photo I used in each painting?
