City Lights by Amy Crook

City Lights, 8″x4″ Japanese watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Stormclouds shroud the city in darkness, distance and fog obscuring the buildings farther away. On the close horizon, cheerful yellow blobs of light beckon the viewer to their warm interiors.

Three colors of lovely Japanese Gansai watercolors make up this simple palette, a blue-black, a violet-black, and of course the welcoming yellow which also glows over the skyline in a display of light pollution.

The buildings this time are mostly simple, traditional skyscrapers in different configurations, with a few interesting variations lurking among the lights.

Above, you can see the little glowing blobs of light defining one skyscraper from another. Below, the painting is in a temporary frame, waiting to be packaged up and sent to its forever home.
