European Cities Paintings


After a summer in Europe, I was inspired to paint some of the cities I visited. I chose four of my favorites: Amsterdam, Paris, Prague and Barcelona. I chose what I thought were classic, recognizable scenes of the cities and tried to capture the spirit of the city in its architecture. I sketched the compositions first in pencil, then painted layers of opaque acrylic paint.
