I think this one is probably my favorite one of your paintings, but then I love them all!

Great painting. I love the grey billowing lifeless smoke above and the colourful, scurrying vibrance of life below. You can almost feel the rippling warmth of the vents. :D

It makes me wish I was down there.
The blue light works beautifully, by the way. :)

Thanks very much! I used a lot of Rembrandt Indanthrene Blue on that one.
