Downtown - Contemporary Modern City Street Painting


A vibrant painting depicting the lights and movement on a busy city
street at night.  Surprisingly, this painting was created from the
same photograph that I used to paint the "Times Square" painting that I
posted a couple of days ago. For "Downtown", I wanted to capture the
feeling of rapid motion experienced by the cars and people in the
photograph.  I like how the broad brush strokes and splashes of
color capture the city lights and the movement of the taxis that are
awash with reflections from the neighboring lights.  There's a lot
to look at in the bright, fun, contemporary painting.
