Cityscapes and Roadscapes

My examination and research is a snapshot of modern American society. Cityscapes became my niche because I enjoy perspective, automobiles and the urban landscape. Drawing cities on a two-dimensional surface give the impression of their height, width, depth, and position. The urban landscape has the qualities of contemporary life revealing human-made lighting which offers a juxtaposition of the natural sky. The urban landscape has elements of architecture, colored lighting, textures, and different reflective materials. A beautiful sky, perspective, and the lights of a cityscape intertwined with a wet street inspire me.
