Amazing painting, right? Nocturnes amaze me. Steven really packed a lot into this painting. This painting has such a nice feel to it with the soft light from the lamps in the house and the nice light showing fabulous shadows from the street light. Very nice how the power lines were illuminated just enough to catch your eye. Steven’s work is fabulous!
Steven Walker won Best Nocturne for his oil “Nightlines”from Plein Air Salon’s Dec/Jan competition.
Can’t you feel that bright sun in your eyes? This painting is a treat… look at those clouds.. oooh how they highlight that orangy yellow so nicely… the sun kissed landscape, very nice! Be sure to look at Steven’s website, it’s chock full of fabulous paintings!
