My mistake, Reeta Well, the soft focus effect enhances the rainy atmosphere.

Please accept my apology. Sometimes I look at your work and it looks more focused, then sometimes it doesn't. There is certainly nothing wrong with that soft, dreamy look that you employ, and in fact, I very much like it in some of your beautiful landscapes.

Re: City Lights

No apology necessary Lamar! I always appreciate honest feedback... if it looked out of focus to you then thats how it looked to you!

In looking at it again, even despite the "soft focus" style of the painting, the actual photograph mayactually be slightly out of focus too, but not by much.
The reason that some of my work looks more out of focus, and others do not, is that sometimes I use that style, and sometimes I work a bit tighter. The majority though is pretty loose, and soft.

Thanks for your compliments on my work and taking the time to comment. Its always appreciated.

Ree

Re: City Lights

Hi Reeta, I'd don't think I've ever seen a city scape of yours let alone a nocturnal. It's very well done and bet it was fun to do!

Re: City Lights

Thanks Leo and Alan! I appreciate the comments.
Leo,
This was the first nocturne cityscape I had ever done. I did enjoy it and hope to do more.

Alan,
This was small.... 8x10.
