Lively, semi-abstract. Good color harmony. Communicates the hustle and bustle well.

Also would be of interest to the relatively new Cityscapes/Urban Art Forum here on Wetcanvas.

Communicates the hustle and bustle well.

Such a lovely slice of the busy hustle and bustle of a city.
We have elections here too next week, but nothing as colourful as this!:)

Very lively and impressionistic. I love the overall cool tones with the flashes of warm color.

I love this. The feeling of busyness and movement really comes across. I feel a bit sentimental looking at it, as it reminds me of a quick coloured pencil sketch I did on a trip to India when I was a teenager.

This painting really 'lives'. It is full of energy and depicts so well the hustle and bustle of life in a city. Excellent work.
