Nocturnal Painting - Three Amigos at the Domain near Sydney Hospital & Parliament House Sydney

I am finding the city at night an interesting place to paint. The light effects and shadows create interesting shapes and a sense of mystery which lends themselves to a more abstract quality in the paintings.
This painting came as I was heading home after an exhibition at the Art Gallery of NSW, and my friends were waiting for me to catch up. The light behind them created mysterious atmospheric silhouettes.
Oil on canvas, mounted on board
10 x 12 inches  (25 x 30 cm)
