Painted on location, Paul has captured the multicoloured streaming bright lights of New York City at night. Bursting with colour, this painting encapsulates the non-stop energy of Times Square, with yellow taxi’s whizzing by, bustling crowds, and flashing billboards. Painted with a vibrant palette of gouache paints, giving the work a luminous quality.
You might also enjoy these other New York paintings from Paul's 365 Project. This was a year-long journey exploring a different range of mediums & working at sizes often smaller, than with his studio pieces. In many cases these formed the studies behind the larger studio works.
A frequent visitor to the New York streets, Paul is passionate about absorbing and drawing inspiration from this most dynamic of cities, hence reflected in this collection of original paintings and prints. Possibly the most immediately identifiable skyline in the world, the Manhattan cityscape is utterly enthralling. Whilst there are many easily recognisable skyscrapers, walking the streets also feels intimately familiar, as the sights and sounds of a multitude of movies and tv shows surround you. Paul strives to bring this energy and intimacy into each piece.
