Brilliant Gowanus

When I am in Brooklyn wandering around, I usually end up at the Gowanus Canal.  This is a view from the Union Street Bridge on a day when the sun was out making the water brilliant and the buildings shine.  I painted this rather broadly because I only wanted to suggest the multitude of details.   The Gowanus is not always like this.  The last time I was there, recently, there was a very low tide, exposing about four or five feet of mud not often seen, and the canal smelled awful.
