|London, Sergey Kachin, the traditional landmarks in a painterly style of impressionism Monet would have adored. (He spent several months in London painting the city orange and blue.)
|The London cityscape spans some 123 years. Both Dawson and Moore capture the essence of the city, flavored moderately by a necklace of landmarks, old and new. How many can you identify?
|Christmas in New York, Robert Finale--cityscapes aiming to capture the essence of the city while only referencing the landmarks without dwelling on them exclusively.
|Two artists, one city, two radically different approaches.
|Innsbruck Seen from the North, circa 1496, Albrecht Durer
|The Little Street, 1657-58,
(oil on canvas), Jan Vermeer
|Note that the colors differ drastically in the two images above. The upper one would seem to be the more accurate.

One of my few attempts at capturing
the essence of a city while relying
only minimally on a famous landmark.
The work was done with a palette
knife in oils.
