Street View--American Cityscape Oil Painting

Today's painting is an 8x10 abstract cityscape from the Different Strokes Challenge . My usual subjects don't often include paintings of cities or skylines, but I took it on anyway. Painting it upside down relieved some of the stress of trying to paint a subject that is out of my comfort zone. When it was just about finished, I flipped the photo upright again and did a last bit of touch up. The painting turned out a little abstract, but I like results. It was a good challenge.
