Sydney Skyline

Acrylic on canvas – 60” (152cm) x 40” (101cm)

This artwork was painted for a good friend of mine, Carlo. He had requested a red sunset for his lounge room and after a year I finally got some time and motivation to put paint to canvas. This took me 10 hours including sketches and layout. The key to this painting was picking the contrasting color. I put the color choose to a vote with some of my friends who chose teal. Apart from the bridge and opera house, which I added to cement the idea of it being the sydney skyline, the buildings match the view from my friends balcony. He had a shit week the week I painted it so I was happy to brighten it up with this painting.
