Artist of the Moment…. Mark Innerst……..

 

this artist is one of my favorite painters of the cityscape. The artist is well known and collected for his paintings of New York City and Philadelphia. He was born in 1957 in New York and earned his B.F.A. from a college in Pennsylvania in 1980. The artist now lives and paints in Cape May, New Jersey.

The artist is known for his layering of paint as well as paintings of the New Jersey amusement parks and Manhattan skyline. Despite being small in stature they are appreciated for their high level of skill and difficulty.

Other artists who paint awesome cityscapes are John Salminem, Daniel Sprick, and Mark Lague.

I recommend taking a few pictures of a certain area before painting it, ESPECIALLY FROM LIFE. In a busy downtown scene its easy to be overwhelmed with information.

keep learning!
