Looking down onto one of New York’s busy urban streets, this piece offers a unique view of this incredible city. Paul has used a palette knife to layer down defined linear marks, accentuating the angular features of the mighty skyscrapers and creating a strong sense of direction and perspective.
These distinct paint marks against gleaming areas of sublime aluminium give the painting a surface full of texture and movement. Light bounces off the exposed aluminium on the buildings, emphasising the dramatic shadows cast on a bright day in New York City.
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.
