Abstract City Downtown Shreveport Louisiana Urban Buildings And Church
Lenora De Lude
Painting - Acrylic
This urban painting is hand painted acrylic. I was standing in the area of Fannin and Edwards Streets in the city of Shreveport Louisiana. The building on the right is the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, which is a very beautiful and painstakingly detailed building. This is only a corner of the back of it.
The main colors in this artwork are red, orange, yellow, brown, blue, and various related shades. There are strong slants here, a tiny bit stronger than reality, for although I like a degree of realism, I am not a photo-realist painter.
Shreveport was founded in 1836 By the Shreve Town Company, named for Captain
Henry Miller Shreve. He was responsible for the clearing of the intriguing Red
River raft, a polite name for a 180-mile long pile of debris that had clogged the Red River for longer than anyone knew. It was said that in some places, the raft was so thick that a man could ride his horse across the river, and not so much as the hoofs would get wet.
Stay tuned. I plan to paint and upload more of the Shreveport area and the
edifices of the past and present.
