Night Painting

This is a painting I did from a picture I took of the UW Hospital at night. Cheating? Maybe...but it's too ^%&-ing cold to stand still outside at night and do a painting, even a short one.

I like how darkness simplifies things and adds a layer of abstration to the image. The color is very limited compared to day, and it goes without saying that there are few value details. I like shape of the smoke against the dark sky in this painting.
