Minneapolis Skyline Colourful Abstract

This week we were set to do a skyline, most of the class wanted to do one of Minneapolis. While a few of us looked and found possibles, the teacher came in with something completely different, a very colourful, stylized skyline, which we were to emulate.

My first thoughts went to the painting “Morning Cyclist” by Fealing LIn, which we’d copied some time ago, and I thoroughly enjoyed. I decided to make mine in a similar fashion.
