Jefferson Market

I'm on a cityscape kick lately so here's another one. This is the Jefferson Market library in Greenwich village at night. I love the Manhattan night-time painting experience; the lights and reflections do things to the colors that are surprising. They also tend to be moodier than daylight paintings. Cityscape and especially nightime scenes have a contemporary feeling - a bit less derivative and "scenic" than pastoral scenes.

I like this building and have been thinking of painting it myself for some time (I usually see it from 14th St.)
Beautiful work, and especially enjoy it as a night scene. Great!
