Water Tower #7

Ah yes, nothing like a deadline to focus the mind. One last piece for my upcoming show at the Arbor Gallery, Vankleek Hill, June 18 - August 16.

Water Tower #7, 24" x 24"
It was a joy to work with these vibrant colours. The blue-tinted violet of the sky looks almost cool compared to the fiery warmth of the oranges, hot pinks and delicious reds, all hand-dyed.

I've used this image before, but never cropped as a square. The colour palette was inspired by the idea of the setting sun reflected on these buildings in lower Manhattan.

Sometimes, turning the piece around can help me assess the composition. Squinting helps.

Here's the original photo, taken from the High Line linear park in lower Manhattan.

These colours and the different orientation certainly do make this a very different piece. I love it.
