Urban Mirage, Oil with the palette knife, 6 x 8"

I wanted to exploit this design/idea further... and I still have two smaller picture frames with copper inset :)

For this one, I tried to keep moving at a steady pace: make quick decisions, stick to them and leave the stroke alone. I premixed my paint: about 3 different colors for each of the 4 values.

I like how distant the "city" appears in the background with a value closer to the value of the sky rather than the value of the foreground. I don't mind the roughness of the strokes either.
