Hi all!
Its been a while since I've painted and I am a little rusty. Its feels soooo good to get dusty again.:heart:
We were in NY on christmas eve and I clicked away to my hearts content. It was so beautiful there. Now to get cracking on the tea painting...

This is 11" x 14" on Wallis.

C & Cs very welcome!

Hi, Bhavana!! Nice, nice, nice!!! I haven't been to New York in a couple of years.... the minute I opened this, your lovely painting took me there so well I could swear I could hear that taxi blarring its horn!!! :D

I've never been to NY but I absolutely love this painting. I can feel the hustle and bustle of a big city atmosphere! Great job.

Great night scene! I really like the point of view in this.

Ooooh, I really like this! Your treatment of edges and light evoke a sense of movement. I had that instant sense of terror and urgency that one feels in NY in the midst of traffic (especially taxis) bearing down on you! Wonderful colors and composition. I really like your work, Bhavana.

My husband tells me about a time that the yellow cabs were 5 across going into a two lane tunnel opening in Ny and three of them were so persistent they actually hit each other and got stuck. That's kissing bumpers.

Had to take another look. I like the rippling effect of the halo of the lights... very nice.

That's fabulous. Typical New York - chucking it down. I wish we could have some here in South Australia.

Top job
