Avenue Barber Shop is on Congress Street in Austin, Texas. Love going down there and painting/photgraphing the urban landscape. I stuck my head in the door of this establishment, and the Barbers were friendly, happy and so handsome.  This painting was a challenge. Lots of elements, no strong chroma (color)... but what a wonderful lesson in light/dark values with a limited pallete. My goal was to keep it loose and use big brushes as much as possible. Pretty pleased with this one.
