Above Chicago by blindedangel Above Chicago by blindedangel
Another view of Chicago.
I had a hard time calling this "finished", I might still peck at this.

Acrylic on 48x36" canvas.

This is great work, nice deep angle to pull the viewer in. The only thing that really stands out as "not complete" is the lack of shadows and direction of light. Not sure if you are going to address this. Either way, great work.

This is cool. It's so hard to get a good birds eye composition down. You did a really nice job with it.

This is acrylic? You're outstanding!
And I mean it, OUT STANDING. I capitalize it like that because I've -never- seen someone handle paint like you do - and you stand out!

It's so out of the norm to see that much detail in such a normal setting. Living in Chicago, its natural beauty is not something that I take enough time to appreciate. You bring out the art in such simple things..like the smooth curve of the street lights and the faded paint on the asphalt. You really rock for that!
Star-quality work, I wouldn't be surprised if you make it really big someday.

:OMG: that scene looks really familiar. I went to chicago march of this year for the first time to apply for school at american academy of art. that building to the left wouldn't happen to be a Utrecht art store would it? because that scene looks like south michigan avenue.

very nice work btw :nod:

the perspective in this piece is quite interesting, as is a nice but not overwhelming amount of detail. a very appealing painting overall.
