broadwayI’ve always loved the night lights on downtown city streets.  Reflections from store fronts, traffic lights and overhead lights bounce off cars and sidewalks.

Notice the linear and atmospheric perspective.  The front car is on the far right but the others end are displayed in a line going from right to left towards a vanishing point.  The same thing is happening with the buildings.  You will see a roof top at the top right which angles downward to the left and the overhead lights angle to the left.  The cars. the roof and the lights all go to a vanishing point in the distance.  This is linear perspective.

Atmospheric perspective is shown by the cars at the front being larger than the ones further back.  Both types of perspective give depth  to the painting.  You have a feeling that you could walk down the street.

This painting is 18″ x 24″ and is for sale at $850.00.  If you are interested in purchasing it, contact me on the email address on this site.

Nice composition. The different colored lights create an abstract effect.

I absolutely love this painting. I think you are amazing with how you portray the lights in the city and from the cars.
