Stockholm Harbor

Here's a painting that was quite a challenge.  A friend of mine commissioned this painting so I didn't post any work in progress photos fearing he might see it.  Anyhow, my friend Dave took this great photo a few years ago, and it means a lot to him, because his father was born in Stockholm.  Of course I wanted to make this work, but the photo I received was kind of a low resolution, so I looked on the internet for other similar photos of the harbor, which might give me more details about the architecture.  Fortunately, there were a couple.  Dave's photo has some drama in it with the clouds, the lighting, and the chop of the water.  Very cool, very challenging.  Thanks Dave!
