1110 Parade of Lights, Part 1 of 4

Parade of Lights, Part 1 of 4
(15X30 canvase; Acrylic Medium)
In the first of 4 lessons in this series, Jerry introduces a cityscape for the first time as one of his painting projects. A metropolitan cityscape with high-rise skyscrapers stretches across a 15x30 canvas with a dark sunset, glowing lights in the buildings that reflect beautifully in the water. In this first session, an exciting blending with a Hake brush is used to create multi colored skies as a dramatic backdrop for the silhouettes of the buildings. The last step for this painting is to mix a very dark color to loosely scrub in the horizon line of buildings and their reflection in the water.
