"Corner of Pleasant and Main"

I had a great time working on this commissioned piece for Action Inc. They have always been very supportive of me and my art so I wanted to give them something I was really proud of when they asked for a painting of the Action building. At first I started off with a small panel and worked out a nice piece, but after experimenting with color I decided to scrap it. For the second sketch I expanded the composition to get all of Pleasant street in the painting too, and kept it black and white.
