Beat the Light NYC

Beat the Light NYC,  18x24" Acrylic
I've got NYC bikers on the brain lately. It's amazing how an upcoming show can squeeze paintings out of an artist in record time.  I had to create and frame this for an upcoming show that has a deadline of today, 5PM. Deadlines... the bain of my existence and the whip-cracker of my "to do" list.

I like these busy NYC scenes. This one especially with the clever use of shadows and primary colors. They both look like they were challenging.

Patti Mollica said...

Thanks stephanie. can't go wrong with the primaries :-)

Hi Patti, I just love the way you do this. You always have a unique spin and have a refreshing perspective, that is always a little surprising and still looks 'just right'. Awesome!

Patti Mollica said...

I just bought your book on color theory and I love it. The next time I teach a color class, it will be the textbook. In fact, I am recommending it to my current students.

Thanks so much for a wonderful book

Patti Mollica said...

Gee thanks Carol! Glad you like it :-)
