The Shipyard by nuu The Shipyard by nuu
This is the painting I did for my school's fund raising project. (Calendars, greeting cards, post cards, etc)
The jury must've really hated it, because it wasn't chosen to be used for any aspect of the fund raising project.

Note: This painting is for sale, so note me if you're interested. Serious enquiries only.

24" x 30"

The way you use blues seems very expressive although of course the contrast with the bronze is fabulous as well, and your painting style is lusciously emotive.
/gush.

Wow, I think it's a beautiful picture. :wow:
I love that blue colour, and the skyscraper looks awesome. :clap:
The jury was obviously crazy not to choose this.

Hi,

I'm a lurker here, but just had to come out of my shell and say that that's a lovely painting. I adore the angle. The smoke-mist adds this industrial atmosphere contrasted so well by the only specks of brightly coloured nature things. With the construction like a border.

Well the jury fucking sucks because this is gorgeous. I love the subtle shading and brush strokes.

I love it, especially the little birds and the lighting on the wood there.

All that cloudiness around the tower makes me think of 9/11 and the buildings collapsing... was this intentional? Nobody else mentioned it and I don't know the theme of your fund-raiser, but that's what I thought of.

I feel dumb for being unsure of your intention, but looking at it this way gives an interesting level to the painting to me. Kind of eerie... showing tranquility in the humble wooden structure with unsuspecting birds, while such a tragedy that we normally focus on is occurring.

I like the way the building blended with the background. It makes it look like it's really far away and the city is in a little bit of a smog/fog. That or it almost makes it look like a city in the sky which is equally cool. I like it a lot.

I love the framming effects the bridge has on the cool buildings. Makes the foreground pop wonderfully.
