Day 7 ....lights of New York

So what kind of trip would it be if I didn't take time to paint the bright lights of  New York?  No city shines brighter... well at least nowhere that I've been.  This had to be the most fun painting that I have done so far.   I will definitely paint this bigger later on.  I had forgotten how much I love painting on a black background.  I used to  start a lot of paintings that way but have gotten away from that in the last year.  It's funny the habits you get into and the things you forget.  I hope you are enjoying this series as much as I am!

Nice to see your city painting on the 30 day challenge. Colors really pull one into the painting. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Wow... so much color, yet you've definitely evoked a sense of darkness. Love it!

It is just STUNNING!
I love the dramatic lighting and vibrant colours.
Time wouldn't allow me to do this challenge, so I opted for the 75 day sketch challenge instead, between painting time. I really admire those involved in this 30 day challenge! :0)
