Cat. No. 1245 Songzhuang Street – 50cm x 40cm – Oil on Linen
I painted this in Songzhuang this week. Songzhuang is Beijing’s largest art district. Almost every building in this small town has something to do with art, and thousands of artists live here. I’ve got a lot of artist friends here as many professional Chinese painters maintain a studio here.
Here is the original scene to show you how I interpreted it. The sky was a little different from in the painting because I took the photo the day after, and there was more pollution in the air, taking away some of the sunlight.
