Michigan Central VII

Michigan Central VII

Abandoned, Portraits of Detroit #44
To a collector in Bloomfield Hills, MI
 oil on linen/panel, 2009, 7x5"
Today's painting is of the arches inside the abandoned Michigan Central Train Station. I am always shocked at the decay inside this once magnificent building. I used a very limited color palette, cad red, cad yellow, chrome green, cobalt blue and white. I was reading about Monet's palette for the water lily paintings and this is the palette he used.
