Highly textured modern impressionist palette knife ( impasto ) oil painting on stretched canvas, 25 x 25, depth - 2.50 cm / 10'' x 10'' inches, depth - 1 inch.
This palette knife oil painting is part of my series ''Abstract cityscapes''. I started this series of abstract cities in 2012 and from then it is a recurrent theme for me. I love to paint abstract cityscapes under bold, vivid, sometimes tormented skies - yellow, pink, purple, orange, red, blue, turquoise, even green skies, sometimes skies ''inhabited'' by huge sun or full moon...
When I paint an abstract cityscape, I try to capture the essence of the subject, most an inner impression, a personal perception ... The city is not rendered, but suggested into an abstract manner by splashes of vibrant colors and impasto palette knife strokes.
