The Glow of City Rain

Title: The Glow of City Rain
Size: 16 x 20
Medium: oil on stretched canvas
Going on eBay auction tonight!
This painting to me really is not a specific place, but a cityscape from my imagination and from my memories of my recent trip to Paris and London. It rained a lot while we were there, but I didn't mind a bit because it made everything seem to glow that much more, especially at night. To emphasize these evening glow of the lights, I used heavy contrasts of light and dark colors, with both brush and palette knife, highlighting the reflective lights with heavier paint and pops of cobalt teal. Thanks so much for checking in and I hope you enjoy!
