Mother and Child

The elevated train structures of the past have always been a fascination of mine. When I was in college there were still a few sections in and around Boston. All of which would be eventually eliminated. This rendering almost went in the trash on Tuesday (so aggravated). I had a scene but no subject. I had several sketch studies of: guys working, lifting stuff in place, cement mixer... I finally landed on a delivery truck bringing a sculpture to the site which made for a narative. This rendering was also about shadow study and the figural aspect of the built forms and the open sky - or whats left of it.
