Illustration Friday - Blur - one of my favorite cities...New York!

Hi Everyone....when I first saw the prompt on IF for this week...the first thing I thought about was New York....everything is all a buzz there and if you don't focus it can all be a big blur of activity....I have to go there soon!!!

I had a lot of fun working on this piece...it was so out of my comfort zone...so loose and fun...and no details...I think I enjoyed it and I hope you do too....

Happy Friday !!!

hugs
Diana

What a wonderful blog, thanks for sending me the link. Is 'Illustration Friday' something that you do by yourself or is it an organized thing? I haven't heard of it before

I like the impressionistic feel. The colors are really vibrant! Nice!

Dolores said...

I think it's absolutely wonderful. Just goes to show you what you can do when 'going out of your comfort zone.'

Bella Sinclair said...

Fantastic! You're absolutely right. NYC can be such a blur with all those lights and bustling. You're going soon? Wonderful! You'll get to see all the Christmas lights up. I love those streaks on the taxis. They really look like they're zooming!
