    An Abstract City

    Hey,
    I recently tried the Grappa thing that Dany51 had provided the link for.
    One of the forms came out as a city scape, I took it to AR & then painted a semi-abstract (well, I don't think it's quite truly abstract ) city scape.
    Since this is an entirely new kind of ballgame for me, I'm not too sure of the merits/demerits of this painting; I wanted some opinions on this.

    I'm also uploading the original screen capture from grappa for reference.

    Well what do you think?

    Love the colors and the light

    Not quite abstract , so would you say that it is expressionist? Your painting has the excitement of bright city nights. Well done.

    Thanks Scott, lol I guess I did overwork it, but kept painting over all the lil details I'd end up adding
    @Janet, yes, I guess expressionist would be probably more apt Glad you liked it.

    The cityscape is nice to see. I only wonder how the grappa draw recalled you a cityscape? My mind is bending...
