This piece started with a fast, loose approach, using gestural marks and drips to inject energy and movement. With each new layer, I refined the details of the scene, strengthening the illusion of light and shadow. The sunlight piercing from behind the Chrysler Building onto the figures brings the scene to life, whilst metallic paint gives the piece a mesmerising shimmer.
