This is one of my favorite pieces that I’ve painted lately! I try to love them all equally but the truth is; while I love creating each of them and feel a measure of pride in each piece, some speak to me more than others, as a finished creation. With Mystic City, the random texture ‘just works’ for me. I also used a new recipe for mixing my blacks in this piece. This adds some warmth to the dark hues in the buildings (that can be seen more in person) while not taking away from the contrast I was trying to capture on a dark and stormy night in the city.
