Ladies in the park. Probably on a trip to the big city! :)
This painting was done very quickly as it was from the "painting a day" series and had to be done in less than 3 hours. (1.3 hrs then and now another .5 hrs)
I have posted this before but did some fix-up on the skyline and improved the contrast. The skyline on the original did not look real enough and I fear it still doesn't. Maybe next time.

Neal, quite lovely. Part of its charm is the skyline I think, buildings near made of clouds. I quite like. :)

It's such a nice and meaningful painting.
The park here represents a peaceful and natural oasis for these ladies out of the town functionalities hanging over all around with its skyline.

They feel like birds almost. Not interacting, but a presence and part of the
color of the park.

Nice painting. :):):)

I like how you pushed the city skyscrapers far from the park so the ladies are very much in the front and nicely colorful...lovely scenery...have done something simillar also...Magnetic scenery,picture.

I'm glad you reposted as I missed the first one.

I love the way the city is portrayed.. it seems cold, aloof and impersonal and really helps to accentuate the oasis of green and social that is the foreground. :):)

Really interesting work. Due to the lighting of the lower part, I'd normally expect the sky to be tinted more reddish. But that little twist has a strong impact on its feel, as coops mentioned it has a dreamlike quality to me too. Very well done Jibes.

Where there are ladies gathered, they're there for one or two reasons; hot body men, or a shoe sale. LOL :D jk, great looking painting :)
