This is an acrylic painting that I made of a make-believe city skyline and it’s reflection. There are a lot of layers in this painting, I used a palette knife to create the buildings as well as their reflections. It’s hard to capture all the texture that layering paints over one another create on the canvas. I kept all the lines in the buildings and the background vertical to give them the illusion of moving or floating in space. This city reminds different people of different places that they’ve been to. Some people told me that they thought it was New York, or Bangkok, or Gotham City from Batman…that city do you see in this painting?
