Description

This aerial view is of Pittsburgh, PA. The rhythmic pattern of the city and the dramatic sky are the elements that initially drew me to paint this view. I thought the S shape of the river would create a nice visual road for the eye to follow through the city and up into the sky. At first, I rendered the sky with accurate cloud shapes but they stood out from the rest of the painting, so I had to find a way of indicating them without over-rendering. The result is from scraping down the area multiple times while adding layers of color. It was a risk because I wasn't able to control the end result but, I think it made for a stronger sky in the end.
