Calgary Chamber of Commerce



The Calgary Chamber of Commerce
8 x 10 Oil

I was recently asked through Swirl Fine Art Gallery to do a commission for a client. Although there was quite a bit of detail in the photograph

I tried to simplify the shapes to get the essence of the building. I was pleased how it turned out and the clients were very happy with the results. I used a complementary colour scheme of blue and orange to give it an "old" sepia feeling.
