Blue Chicago

Derin Baratka's avatar Derin Baratka

The photo for this painting was taken while I was visiting the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. We were walking across a bridge in the zoo and looked south towards the city. The view of the city was stunning, with great architecture but giving me the impression of a sad and unhappy city. As an artist I decided to paint Chicago with a happier energy. My painting style is to create positive energy by using color, so while painting this picture I kept the building structures but added color to help brighten the skyline and make it happier. This is my impression of the view and the beauty of "Blue Chicago".
