In this dynamic New York cityscape scene, Paul captures the vibrancy of the metropolis at sunset.
Bright lights trail behind traffic dashing into the distance, past the glowing Chrysler Building and the imposing urban skyscrapers of Manhattan.
Painting with thick layers of oil paint, Paul creates visual dimension, rich texture and an impression of fast-paced motion.
This piece is painted onto very thick, handmade Indian paper, with ‘torn’ edges. Rather than using a more conventional framing method, which is not practical with paper this thick, this piece is framed using a beautiful ‘Floating Frame’ technique, where the artwork is mounted to a backboard to reveal all of those fantastic edges, with the clear acrylic face of the frame suspended a couple of centimetres above the surface, making for a unique complete piece of art. The accompanying image shows a close-up of the artwork floating within its frame.
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.
