It's winter in Manhattan. People have just left work and are on their way home. This is the intersection of Houston and Broadway. It's busy and there is not much of a chance to jaywalk. You know how New Yorkers love that. As soon as I snapped the picture, red had changed to white and they were off.
It was a challenge to paint the figures back lit in the red light. I initially had the figures too dark and went back and added some color in the 4 and 5 range. It was a good exercise in painting contrast.
I can't think of a name for the painting. Any suggestions?
