View from a Brooklyn Rooftop

Renee has a colleague whose apartment has fabulous views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. When we visited him last summer I made sure to bring my camera and from the roof got this view of the Verrazano Bridge from between two buildings close to Prospect Park. Recently I previewed the painting to Charles, from whose roof I had taken the reference shot. He agreed that the views have made this apartment a place he wants to stay for quite a while.

 

I do love assembling a vertical landscape. The challenge with this one was that it's really about three different visions combined in one painting.
