Chicago Streets by alanbecker Chicago Streets by alanbecker
I took a picture from the back of the car as we were visiting Chicago.. I thought it was a good picture so I painted it later.

It's a watercolor.

I am continually amazed by your talents across the board. Did you learn watercolors when you were born or were you innately that talented??? The amount of detail you managed to include into the painting is astounding! AND WITH WATERCOLORS!!! Jeezle peats, I think I might have to lie down for awhile...

Very nice, you capture what it is like driving in that city rather well, though it looks nicer in your pic than in real life (I'm from the burbs of Chicago). In real life I find it nerve wracking to be a passenger even, would never be willing to drive downtown!

That's a really good picture, especially considering it's watercolour - which I have always thought hard to do. But wow, that's alot of cars though, I've never really seen streets from this perspective - except for in real life - and I had forgotten how many cars there are out there(I live in a 300.000 person country, you see).
