Urban Escape 3

Here is the finished picture. The object in the distance is a red bus. The "building" objects around the horse were going to be grey but on the spur of the moment I decided to paint them like butterfly wings and used iridescent (metallic) green. Glazing large opaque black areas like this is very unwise, especially wet in wet, but it is the only feasible way to paint "ink-blots" on the spur of the moment. A strange memorable picture of contrasts; ugliness and beauty, as well as sadness and joy.
