West Village Corner is a 50x50 cm oil on canvas, gallery stretcherbars. What I like about this image is the movement of the guy and the stark contrast. Like the Macchiaioli used. What's that? There is a lame article on wikipedia: Macchiaioli . I used a palette-knife to scrape off different colored gobs of semi-dried paint from my palette, added them to smooth chunks of luxurious ivory black then liberally smeared the mess all over. I love the 3D effect of the colored black background.
