I like the angle at which this one is painted. Gives the picture a more cinematic feel.

Amazing brilliant lights and reflection
Onyana Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The choice of view angle and the dramatic perspective creates such an engrossing effect, for the bench and the road in particular. Of course, your use of colour and palette knife work leaves me speechless. Thank you for sharing this with us!

The depth of contrast...somehow you have made the depths of contrast merge and look natural! Along with the reflection and the perception of being able to walk into this painting... I believe you have touched on something quite beautiful, yet mysterious here!

I'd give anything to be able to paint like this. It's emotional, deep and sort of wet, like rain. Only for me, autumn is less blue, and a little more green!
chescat Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012
this is gorgeous! i absolutely love the colors - rich and bright without being too busy. it almost looks like you tried to take a photo, but rain made the world run (the bench still looks solid, making the rest look blurred). I love the effect. I want to take a walk there!

You pictured something, that is present in the night, but people can't see it. But it could be felt. This painting is miraculously capturing it. I love the feeling which it evokes in me. :)

I have always enjoyed seeing/looking at your work. Hopefully one day I might be able to have the money to own one of your one of a kind pieces for my home.
I am trying to increase my abilities with painting so I would greatly appreciate some pointers from a great artist such as yourself.
Continue being brilliant.

Nothing to say....only AWSOME!!!!!

WOW! Brilliant. I love the "wetness" of the ground, and the criss-crossing branches together with the color variation and hues remind me of stained glass windows:D The blurry smudge on the bench makes it feel like it could be raining still.

I think your work is beautiful and it does more than just look pleasing to the eye. The color is so vibrant and have achieved an electric feel with your treatment of the colors. Thank you for sharing...perhaps one day when I begin to sell my art, I will purchase one or more of your pieces.

Lorndane Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
I'm all about contrasts and this painting does it in a way I've not seen before. I love the streetlights and use of progressively darker colors to accent the differences. The reflection on what I'm assuming is a wet street or footpath only adds to it. I'm adding you to my watch list.
evi1angel9 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2011
It is stunning, the top portion looks like a mosaic while the bottom looks smooth like water reflecting the top. The areas around the lights are magnificent, you have really conveyed that they are giving off light. The perspective is lower to the ground than one might expect but I think it draws your attention perfectly. And of course the bench, such a simple object that really makes the piece interesting. Without the bench, this piece would be plain and boring but with it, your eyes move around the canvas. Overall it is really beautiful and amazing :D
DruManiac Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
excellent work!
Wolfmane52 Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2011
This is gorgeous. I love the colour and the technique. The perspective is interesting and the mix of detailing and blurring is well balanced. I wish this were hanging on my wall.
kingholocaust Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2011
I absolutely love ALL your work I've seen here. I am particularly fond of the use of color. And when I squint it's just the most amazing thing.

So beautiful one! Original point of view, here in the ground, and great job with the colours! :D
horseygurl258 Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Student Photographer
Gorgeous! I was going to try and come up with some constructive criticism for you, but I honestly think it's perfect like it is! Granted, I'm not a painter, but the contrast in colors, blur, perspective, and points of lights all work splendidly together =) The only thing I might say is that the bleeding on the far end of the bench could be a little more subtle; it's more pronounced than any of the other blur in the piece and it looks a little strange...but then again, that could just be me =)
valeka Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I love this one!
