New York Cityscape (Karin Jurick's DSDF challenge) - Day 5
Today I added a few more details and gave it a final touch as follows:
Added an imaginary red SUV in the middle to help flow of red.
Added a bit more blue tone to the distant buildings to create 'smoky' urban atmosphere.
Added another small traffic signal post and a lamppost.
And little more details on the buildings.
It was a really fun experience and many thanks to Karin Jurick for giving us this great opportunity to participate and share with others.
Here is the final painting.
"Madison Avenue, New York City" - oil on canvas, 30 x 24 in
Watercolor was my first love.
I used to bring in a small watercolor set and paint in my car during my break.
And painted local scenery for over ten years.
There were times when I painted watercolor en plein air and sold my work to morning joggers, lunch time pass-byers and evening walkers everyday.
Then switched to oil and painted about ten years.
Now I'm back to watercolor and still love it.
It's like an old friend who greets me after all these years, warm, cheerful, spontaneous and surprising!
