Sunset Light On The Chrysler Building
I took the reference photo for this painting on an overcast day, so the light on the building was diffused. The painting itself has been looking a little dull to me; I'd painted the sky as a deepening sunset to give it a little interest, but recently I realized that if it were a true picture of a sunset, the west side of the building could be lit up by the warm rays of the sun. There are just slivers of orange-y color, but I think it's enough to bring the building to life.
