What a wonderful town

It's A Wonderful Town

Oil with a palette knife on canvas
12" by 6"

This is my entry into this week's Different Strokes From Different Folks challenge. I was just in NYC last week so I was really looking forward to painting this one. I love New York. It is truly a wonderful town. That's why in my painting the sky is a beautiful blue. I found painting the taxis came quickly, the buildings...well I sruggled a bit with those. Getting straight enough lines with the palette knife is a bit difficult. You can check out Karin's reference photo here.

This is wonderful! You've captured the sense of busyness and activity of such a street scene with your colors and brush strokes.
