Brick Buildings in Nashville (oil 8/10 panel SOLD


Started the sketch outside (en plein air I think they say) and I finished it from memory the next day. It's behind the Lifeway building off 9th I think. I can't remember those road numbers. One of these buildings was an old piano store. I think they are abandoned or hobos stay in them. I did see a rat.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a nice compliment. I really like your piece 'Lower Broad, Nashville'....great quality of light with a beautiful graphic treatment of the buildings!

I like the quick-stroke way you laid in the shadows over the doors. This is the deepest richest brick red I've seen. It has to have been painted over. The pink building next to it is a nice soft compliment.

I don't know if it was painted over. I didn't go across the street to get a close look. The bricks were pretty rich which initially caught my eye. I didn't go across the street. The pink was painted on the brick though.
