Apollo Coffee II

Acrylic on Canvas – 6"x 6" SOLD
I finally got around to doing a better painting of the Apollo Coffee. At someone's suggestion, I loosened the cropping so that a bit more street and sky appear, and was off to a running start. Not sure how it happened, but I really felt in the zone and it just sort of painted itself. Wouldn't it be great to tap into this and have it happen every time. Then again, maybe that would kill the thrill of it all.

Wow...this turned out Great! Love it!
Really like your use of darks in this and that red is gorgeous. Like the touches of random red and that little bit of green on the right edge that you let show thru. The shadows are perfect. Ah...The Zone. I want to go to there.
