Rooftops, Des Moines

Rooftops, Des Moines

Acrylic collage

In this view, I used a photo taken of downtown Des Moines a few years ago from the top of a parking garage. The architecture and building forms interested me. The panoramic view from above was inspiring! Of course, I took artistic liberty with most of the building colors and used a strong value pattern to emphasize the shapes. The rough texture of the heavy body acrylic paint adds interest too.
