This painting in on canvas...black gesso was applied first and while wet added white gesso, brushed it around for a marble effect...then scraped out rectangles/circles/square shapes with different tools. Watercolor was used for the signs and the arch doorways added some structure to the painting....I enjoy the many colors that only night time can expose....drawing from memories without a reference....had fun...kinda like 'what if'.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/22-Oct-2011/191496-Night_Lights.jpg

The shapes and palette have a Paul Klee feel to them, I like it.
