Paul Kenton - East 42nd Street

Bold, structural, directional, architectural lines were the starting point for this image and what initially captured my eye. Painted on an overcast day, created from sketches on location, the Chrysler is one of my favourite buildings in New York. Use of soft, subtle light colouring the sky is reflected in the minimal mono colour palette, tempting the downpour onto the buildings. Abstract elements appear within flickers of paint. Often I just go for what feels right, coaxing life into manmade structures. A cool and calm city portrait.
