New York, stormy New York

I recently went to New York City with my family for a long weekend. The weather was perfect for most of the trip but the last day when Tropical Storm Philippe paid the Big Apple a visit.

Strong gusty winds and heavy rainfall enveloped the city. This painting was inspired by that stormy, wind and rain filled day.

It was originally a mixed media piece (acrylic and hand-painted papers) that needed some more love. I used a mixture of dark blue and green alcohol inks to create an overlay on the piece. It instantly transformed the work into conveying exactly what the city looked like that stormy Sunday in October.
