Impressionist painter Michael Alford imparts a modern cityscape scene rendered in classical figurative brushwork. Focusing on the beguiling lighting which suffuses the streets of the metropolis during the dusk hours, the artist hones in on the dramatic ambience of the nighttime. Creating an impression of passersby, the artist has captured an everyday landscape that is charged with illuminating tones. A balance between the muted characteristics of the urban environemnt and an electified illuminated sky produces a captivating impression. This original artwork is painted in oils on canvas stretched over board, beautifully complemented with a frame, and hand signed by the artist and ready to be displayed.
