This scene is observed from the 30th story, allowing me a wide view of the landscape. The building in the front right was interesting to paint as it sits on a platform of street-level shops and a parking garage. This building is also an odd shape, creating interesting reflections and a play of light against the broad low roofs. The Wide range of the reds and oranges in the foreground define those structures as near while the tan in the distance is more uniform, giving the landscape depth. The river and bridge bring your eye back to the front, unifying the piece. The orange crane in the center (centered both two-dimensionally and three-dimensionally, anchors the whole painting.
