"Statue of Liberty"
8"x6" oil on canvas panel
No series about scenes from New York City would be complete without the Statue of Liberty, so here is my version.
If you read my blog yesterday, you may remember my vivid blue skies above Battery Park. I mentioned if you looked to the left across the Hudson River this is the eerie sight you would see. It was almost as though a curtain had been drawn to separate the beautiful blue skies from the misty haze over the water.
My color palette consisted of three values of Torrit Grey by Gamblin Artist's Oil Colors and a little yellow ochre and a dab of ultramarine blue for the trees surrounding the base of the statue.
A very simple and monochromatic scene which I rather like!
