This is my June entry to Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout blog.

Ladies of Vilandes Steet
(16x12 oil on canvas panel)

I found this old building at 11 Vilandes Street, Rega, Latvia. REF-IMAGE. I liked the cool gray figures against the warm yellow orange wall, and am always on the look out for patina that comes with age.  I am only about half done with this Painting. The stones on the right side need details like the ones on the left, the lower half of both figures are have quite a bit of detail work. You can see some of the pencil drawing on the doors, you can see what they will look like from the reference photo. Also the gray lower walls have a lot of brown tones. I will probably leave out the graffiti. I will  repost the image when completed.
