The first time I saw New York City from above, I noticed that a fragmented city suddenly
transforms into one cohesive unit. The birds-eye-view, evokes feelings of freedom and eludes to
the vastness of space. Through the color and texture of the oil sticks, the many layers, textures,
strokes and colors intertwine capture the true magnificence of New York City’s skyline.
Painting from nature is not copying the object;
it is realizing one’s sensations.
- Paul Cézanne
