"soaring"

At day two...this painting is smaller and in that tall, skinny format that I love.  I focused on thick paint and simplifying the shapes in this. I thought about adding the cabs(you can see in the reference picture below) because that yellow was so tempting but in the end I really just wanted to focus on the Freedom Tower and the sky and play everything else down.
