"Rialto Theatre" watercolor

"The Rialto Theatre"   watercolor   "12 x 9 1/2" by Stephen D'Amato
    I found myself really interested in these old movie theatres. The Rialto Theatre in Westfield is somewhat similar to the Cranford Movie Theatre. The jutting marque etc. They both face to the north and the sunset light from the west casts nice shades under the canopies and marques. The design is from a bygone era.

Recent Watercolor Still-Life Paintings

   After my rotator cuff tear surgery in October, I got to the point where I could paint small still lifes. The small sizes did not become a problem as the larger sizes would have. Actually I am still recovering from it, but fortunately sitting down with the smaller sizes are workable.
