Tropical Isle, Bourbon Street

This painting not only looks a little spooky but it came to life in a spooky way too. My intention was to do a line and wash sketch of this New Orleans bar in daylight, as it was in the photograph. I truly don't know how it happened, but as the afternoon progressed, it turned into a full-blown nocturne, a style of painting I have no experience with at all! This one may become a part of my Halloween decorations.
