Scylla and Charybdis by jacobsteel Scylla and Charybdis by jacobsteel
Acrylic paint on wood. 12x24"

Started out as a series of sketches of this early bird parking lot that filled up real fast under these hovering buildings.

I love this, I love how fluid the colours are, and how everything looks like its being dragged downwards. The colours are beautiful.
Sorry, usually I make better comments than this but I can't think of one at the moment. But this was too beautiful for me not to fav.

A new favorite! I love the feel of it, reminds me of a 90's urban style, title isn't exactly apt though.

Sort of oppressive, with the colors...and some of the windows look rather like teeth. It has a waiting kind of feeling about it.
