Steel City USA

Sara Pearson's avatar Sara Pearson

This mixed media piece is a combination of photography and Photoshop to create a vibrant view of the City of Pittsburgh (Steel City, USA). The view is from the upper deck of PNC Park home of the Pittsburgh Pirates. It was an evening game after a day of rain, and the sun came out lighting up the skyline. My goal was to enhance this skyline and bring out the golden glow from the sun. My work takes on a painterly look, and I like to create strong, bold images with sharp crisp lines. The building lines and the curves of the bridge create a pleasing geometric arrangement of blocks highlighted in light and shadow creating a three dimensional appearance. The image is printed on a 24"x36" wrapped canvas.
