6th Street Overpass

shaddy safadi, concept art, downtown la, 6th street overpass


Dell Inspiron 1525 / Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet / Photoshop CS5

Life painting of Downtown LA, on 6th Street overlooking the 110 Freeway. – 2.5 hrs in the field – 2 hours at home touching up. This was an attempt to paint architecture in a painterly way. It seems in such a case, it is the parts of the overpass that are catching light require the most precision, especially the curved bridge which was done using the path tool. The edges were slightly distressed later to prevent the bridge from looking too graphic.
