Manhattan Inspirations
I love to travel to large cities, with bustling streets and sidewalks, restaurants, coffee shops and architecture. Palm trees and beaches, although beautiful, simply don't inspire me to draw. Street scenes, and public interior spaces, do.
This series is about Manhattan. I always find inspiration in New York City, and every time I go there, I take endless pictures and roam the streets for my next painting. In particular, I like areas that are defined by either trees, colour, or walls. I particularly like it when the main area of an image leads into other spaces, through windows, doors, or hallways.
