#78 – Majestic City Lights
Original Work By Jeff Dillon
This painting as one of my favourites completed to date. This piece features the Roman Forum in Italy. There are many different sources of light in this piece, which made it uniquely challenging when selecting and blending pigments. The sky is soft with fluid clouds detailed in layers of cerulean blue. The Forum is meticulously layered in warm shades ranging from cadmium orange, iron oxide brown, naples yellow all the way to soft pink. Carbon black and slate grey linework is used to chisel out the forms of the architecture.
Original Size: 48″ x 36″
Jeff Dillon the Canadian Artist, inspired by the bold colours and brush strokes of Post-Impressionist Artists. His unique style focuses on capturing light, not through the detail of realism, but with gesture, illusion, shape and colour. He offers a personal and distinctive style to the world through his bold use of colours and lines, often symbolic images or subject matter. Objects in the paintings retain their realistic appearance yet have a vibrancy and fluidity about them, unique to his work. Jeff Dillon’s new expression of Post-Impressionism is both beloved and revered in the Canadian and Global Contemporary Art World.
