New York Street Scene

What a fun painting Karen Jurick had for us to paint this dsdf session. The canyon of New York City with their colorful, ubiquitous taxi cabs. I had one more strip of yupo, so I had to paint it on that. I love the result of the wavy edges and the way one color oozes into another. It's a small painting, only 15 x 3.5 inches, so I could only do a sliver of the whole picture which you can view at You can also see all the other fabulous painters' renditions of the same picture. It's really fun to see the creativity that takes place on that blog.


  1. Thank you so much for your comment on my orchid. I don't know why we just strive to do something thats just out of our reach! I always look at paintings that are loose and want to paint like that. I love yours!
    I'm going to look into that web site ...Different strokes. Thanks again.

  2. Barbara joan, thanks for your comment. When you paint on yupo it almost forces you to be loose, there is just no controling watercolor on that slick surface.

  3. I love how you squuezed this into a tall skinny shape. That was kind of what I thought when I first saw the photo, too. It really gets the city feeling across.

  4. nice cropped look for DSFDF gives a good feeling of a city.
