The Faded State, by Lucy Walker. Original Gouache Painting, on a high quality A3 canvas. This painting was inspired by a very expressive blocky style, from the very visible brush strokes on this painting adding some distortion to it. This landscape painting is clearly identified as The Empire State Building in New York. What makes this paintings so unique is your appreciation of seeing something that has been done many times before, to this work of art done in a style that completely changes and challenges your perspective.
