Artist's description:

This thick impasto Oil Painting on High Quality Stretched Canvas was painted using a number of different sized Palette Knives to apply the thick paint. I really like thick impasto Artworks and like to paint like this from time to time. This is a night view of Taipei City, Taiwan painted from the balcony of my apartment looking towards Taipei 101. This is one of the thickest paintings I have done and it was built up by overlaying layers of Oil paint. I enjoy the night-time colours of Taipei City as there are always a lot of contrasts between bright neon lights and darker rooftops. In this painting, the darker rooftops are hundreds of apartment buildings that are in the 2 miles between my apartment and Taipei 101. It is always an interesting challenge to try to capture the different shapes, angles and scale of cityscapes. This painting was done over a few overcast evenings and the lights of the city were creating the bright grey colour of the sky, I like the rougher finish with less detail than in my usual works.
