New techniques

I am having a big phase of wanting to try new art products and techniques at the moment. Having done some research on line, I have been experimenting with painting skies and trying to get a Bokeh effect. Here is the latest painting that I created with a Bokeh Sky over Sodermalm.

This particular view of Sodermalm is quite famous being seen from the commuter train and road system leading south from the center of Stockholm. As its still cold and frosty with the rivers partly frozen over I added a touch of frost to the rooftops and windows and icy sections on the river.

Creating the Bokeh effect was very rewarding, I was pleased with the result achieved and the warmth it added to the painting.
