love this, need this, have to paint one from nearest neck of the concrete. compelling mood, the brutality of a city structure in the right light.

Perfectly captures an urban night scene.

Thanks guys, this panel is about a 1/2" thick with paint. Started out trying to do a black cat crossing the street at night. Bailed after about 3 attempts. Then tried a deer in the headlights at night. That took a long agonizing death - probably at least five attempts. So glad this panel got some love in the end.

I like how most of the canvas is black. Like the color being like real lights at night. Really like driving. Happy to’ve seen this :)

This is really great, especially the rule of thirds comp with the COI right near one of the hot spots. You really nailed the exact colors of the signs and the yellow line.

I like the way you've exaggerated the dark by making most of the composition pitch-black. It really makes the lights pop.
