Manhattan Showers - Original Large-Scale New York Cityscape Painting by UK Contemporary Artist Paul Kenton, from the New York Collection

Manhattan Showers

60″ x 96″

Mixed Media on Canvas

In Manhattan Showers, pedestrians dash for shelter on a rainy afternoon in New York. The rain adds an extra glow to the Manhattan streets, which reflect the lights radiating from inside buildings. Glistening metallic paint gives the surface of the piece a beautiful sheen, when it catches the light. Paul paints with fluid brushstrokes and finishes with his dripping technique, to further create the impression of rainfall and rapid movement. Using a limited palette, Paul adds hints of bold red to draw your eye into the piece.
