The geometical forms, the pairing of red & grey & the light & dark that's in this piece is awesome. Love it!

This looks great. The color combination is wonderful; the red really makes this piece pop out, but there's a good bit of pale blues and grays to keep it from being too overpowering. The lighting is also wonderful; there's a very convincing feeling that there is a powerful light source in the image through the use of the intense shadows. The variation in sizes of the shapes makes for a very interesting composition, and the few curves in the piece make for a great subtle contrast and balance in the piece. Awesome work! :)

This is a really great looking piece, although I can't really put my finger on what it is that appeals to me so much - it's probably the unique use of red for the buildings. Great job.

That is so cool. This is something I'd see in an art gallery and remember as one of my favourites.

This is great - u are experimenting with colour and it is so different to other epices i have seen of yours! I love it. even though red is an abtract colour for light - it still looks realistic....Brilliant...I love it.
tamino's avatar
yes it´s always good to try new things. i liked the concept you gave, that red is an abstract color for light, i didn´t think of it that way ;)
