New Plein Air Painting of 56 Leonard Building, Tribeca, New York

New Painting of 56 Leonard Building in Tribeca, NYC
I've been enjoying my summer out door painting. So many locations to paint! This is one of my favorite spots in Tribeca. I've been creating paintings of the new 56 Leonard building since last summer. It's been an interesting project watching the construction progress.

For this piece I started with a grisaille (earth tone sketch). I do like this kind of start, its a good way to sketch in the scene, do all the perspective and drawing problem solving at this stage. once it's dry I'll return to start adding color.
