This piece is part of Judy Mudd's City Life series. Her goal with the painting was to create more drama than what she saw on location. She worked out her vision by making value and color studies prior to starting the painting. Judy then added more light on the street to create stronger shadows on the building to the right and on the homes and street on the left.

Getting to Know Judy

For Judy Mudd, creating a work of art means much more than simply reproducing something she sees. “It is more than painting a subject, it is expressing a feeling,” she explains. Judy develops her paintings with thorough reconnaissance work. She goes out on photo shoots in a variety of atmospheric conditions, sketches outdoors, takes notes, and completes color and value studies. From there, back in the studio, she lets the paintbrush guide her. Outside of painting, Judy also leads watercolor workshops and runs a real estate business with her husband.
