Midtown New York by Lisa Elley. Palette Knife Painting. Oil on canvas. 24 X 36 X 1.5 Inches. 2013
What’s not to love about the New York Skyline?
Whether you are from there, have lived there,
visited or dreamed of New York, we are all
drawn to the vibrancy of such an electric city.
I spent a year there in 1997,
and have wonderful memories of working,
and living in Manhattan.
I drew upon those memories to create my cityscape palette knife painting, using lots of Prussian, french ultramarine and cerulean blues with complementary orange highlights.
