This painting is astounding. The mix of colors with the grey, black and white really catch the eye and draw it across the whole picture. I like how you faded out the color towards the back so it seems almost like the rays of the sun rise are coloring each building as they touch it (I don't know if that's what you were going for but that's the impression I get lol). I also really like how you made everything below the building black. It really gives the impression of shadows and the lights of all the cars and street lamps. This is very well done. Keep up the good work :) Can't wait to more.

Bonjour / bonsoir !
Je suis la page de Nicholas Jolly depuis mon premier jour DeviantArt.
Un artiste que j'apprécie beaucoup de par son assiduité, sa rigueur mais aussi de par ce travail complet.
Une richesse de nuances, de traits et d'expression.
Mais aussi il y a de la générosité, car, comme vous pouvez le constater au sein de cette œuvre, il a pris le temps de nous "dessiner" cette ville, de lui bâtir des fondations solides afin de pouvoir lui donner cette vue vertigineuse, de lui donner vie par le biais de ces multiples couches de couleurs puis de rehausser ces teintes en ombrant avec parcimonie. J'adore ces lignes blanches : une impression fantomatique !
La sensation de ressentir ce battement de cœur urbain.
Merci Nicholas.
Prenez donc un peu de votre temps pour découvrir sa gallérie ;)

Beautiful work. The way you create depth and form using almost abstract expressionist splashes of color and a scratchy linear structure gives this a lot of energy.

That looks absolutely amazing!  It looks magnificent and grand because of the perspective, but also real because of the grungy color palette.

Excellent - it's good to see your style transfers well to the New York skyline and finds itself equally at home as it is in the rain soaked boulevards of Paris.

Thanx for acknowledging my work. Roofs N 1 reminds me of the American Comic Artist Bill Sienkiewicz work which stands out. Marvel/DC Artist should use this style as a backdrop.
 I used to be an engineering Draughtsman and then did AutoCAD so I absolutely love using Google (Trimble) sketchup for perspective. A DC editor in a Comic Con In Birmingham,U.K. about 2 years ago told me I should rule lines on my backgrounds.:| (Blank Stare)
