The Rains of New York City, 12 x 12 in., Oil on Canvas, Original Artwork, Unframed
ABOUT: ‘The Rains of New York City’ is a salute to the city that never sleeps. After the rain has stopped, the city continues to move. DIMENSIONS: 12 x 12 in. (standard size for easy framing) MATERIALS: Painted in professional oil paints on a cotton canvas, stretched on a wooden stretcher frame, canvas has been gessoed with three coats to maintain cotton integrity, paint was mixed with my own personal concentration of oil mediums to give paint strength and adds to protection for years to come (gives a nice soft varnish look when dry). Painting comes unframed, but size is standard so will be affordable. (C) Burge Mountain Artworks, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
There is no place like New York City. While I could never live there, it does have an appeal of excitement. For this painting I tried a monomatic color scheme this time (using only one color but with multiple shades). Gray is obviously the main theme of this painting. Gray is not a color on the color wheel; however, with color theory it is made from a mixture of equal parts of all three primary colors (red, yellow, and blue). I used a little white to give the gray some value.
This isn’t my typical type of subject matter that I do, but was practicing a cityscape on this one. I thought I would take a stab at it from my imagination. Enjoy!
