city girl art

Update:  I finished this piece so I thought I post the new version. I was going to add more things in the background but I just don't know what so I left it. Those flowers are cherry blossoms though they probaby don't look it but that's okay. I like the way they look anyway. (Click on the image for a larger view.)

'city girl'
This week's Scribble Picnic prompt is "My place/town/county/borough/province/state" which seems a rather wide subject to me. So this landscape of buildings and trees represent the city and a little bit of country? I didn't think this through at all. Honestly, I don't even know if I'll be adding anything but I really like the way it looks now. It's a bit unfinished so I'll be working it some more. You will have to click on the image for a better view.

  1. Wow. I like the thought that there is a little bit of country in the city (and vice versa), and really admire this piece.

    1. there are a lot of parks here in nyc so it does sometimes feel like you're in the country so I hope it's somewhat represented here.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

  2. Lovely landscape. I love how you can get your colours so uniform, yet graduating. That's one of my eternal problems.

    1. I have always have problems choosing colors but for this piece, it seems to work out. not sure what you meant by 'graduating' - I'm guessing 'gradually' is the word you want to use? doesn't matter.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

    1. I do love the city but I sometimes I think about moving to the country but then I realize I really wouldn't be able to do it because I'm too used to the city and I really isn't very good with tool or animals, I just wouldn't be able to get by but it's a nice thought.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

    1. I always seems to draw calm faces because I really don't do much action scenes.

  5. Lissa,

    Beautiful job. Is this digital art? It looks amazing! Thanks for stopping in for a peek at my SP contribution. Have a good weekend!

    1. yes, this is completely digitally. it's all done in Adobe Illustrator but later on, I will add some shading and textures and whatever else using Photoshop.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

  6. Her facial expression is so beautiful and, as always, Lissa your art is amazing. Love her hand in her pocket and the tree just beginning to wrap a branch around the lamp post. I feel the breeze too. The misty skyscrapers are definitely New York City - lucky you living in one of the most special cities in the world.

    So glad you popped up here this week - I've missed your beautiful work.
    Happy weekend, Mary

    1. actually I was going to change the cherry blossoms to leaves but then decided I like cherry blossoms better though I don't see cherry blossoms much around here.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.
