Chinatown Lantern

By March 23, 2010April 21st, 20212 Comments

Victoria has a wonderful Chinatown. It is one of my favorite parts of the city. Plus it has a great restaurant there (The Noodle Box) and is only a street away from the best art store (Opus). What was fun about this painting was the texture on the wall behind the lantern. I used Kosher salt to create it and some beautiful colors- New Gamboge and Winsor Red.

    Hi Leslie:
    Victoria is a beautiful city! Your painting Chinatown Lantern evokes the feeling of old character buildings with the 'shabby chic' look of rich texture and colour. I love this painting.
