On a recent trip to Chapel Hill, I saw this beautiful evening view of the UNC Bell Tower. I always carry my watercolors with me and really wanted to sit down to paint! However, finding parking was a challenge! And outdoor light does not last while you are driving around to find parking. I got my opportunity again few days later. I was at Top of The Hill Restaurant Bridal Show (actually it was a show for Grooms!) to promote my live wedding painting. I did a live event sketch while I was at this event (the event was organized by Joye Speight ot Virtue Events). And then headed out to paint the tower. It was a Sunday, but, parking was still hard to find! It is a busy area! Full of activities. I walked around to find this view. It was a beautiful evening. Little chilly. I finished most of the painting on location. It got dark, so, I headed home. I added details back in my studio.
If you collect original watercolors, plein air work, Chapel Hill art or UNC art, this will be a great piece for your collection. The original painting is available, and I am also offering prints of different sizes. In fact, you can order prints of any of my paintings. Please contact me for details.
Last year, I had painted Jennifer & Ben’s wedding ceremony at University UMC on Franklin Street. I also have a plein air painting of Franklin Street available. 2013 wedding season will start with a live painting in Asheville area.
