Are you sick of New York City yet? I’m not.
This week we have a small acrylic study of The Empire State Building, as seen from our hotel room on the top floor of the Hilton, Times Square. This was done on a small piece of canvas board using cheap brushes and X-Acto knives. This piece was started almost a month ago, and finally finished late last week. It dried enough for me to scan, so it didn’t need any color-correction, or much in the way of cropping.
If you’re looking at it on a desktop computer, you may be seeing it larger than the size it was painted. I wasn’t going for stark realism here, but it’s not really impressionistic, either. I like to call this particular school of artistic development “quick and sloppy.”
If I revisit this, it’ll be part of a larger piece.
