Expressive Cityscape Painting Details

This Expressive Cityscape Painting captures downtown Richmond. It's created with a mixed media combination of acrylics, inks and compressed charcoal on archival paper, and measures 22" x 30. I used a photo reference as a means to get started but relied on my spontaneous reactions to what I was seeing as I applied the mediums. Being free to express myself is what makes art so liberating and enjoyable. It also allows the opportunity for the painting to have a unique quality. Perhaps it's a cliche but I do think an artist should paint what they feel versus what they see.

Hope you enjoyed the new painting and thanks for having a look.
