Colorful Sky with the Space Needle – Featured Art Prints

As a departure from last weeks black and white photography, this week I want to look at a very colorful sky I created as a backdrop to the Seattle skyline. Using a fauvism technique to create the bright colored sky and abstract look, I have attached two art prints that are just slightly different.

In the first print “Space Needle Colorful Sky”, I centered the Space Needle as a focal point with the buildings of downtown part of the background.


In the second print “Space Needle Fauvism Style”, I put the Space Needle off-center to the right to allow the downtown buildings to become more prominent in the overall look. 

My initial reaction between the two was the Space Needle centered, but then I was pulled to the Space Needle on the right side for the reasons I stated…..Thoughts?

      Thank you very much Ryan! I ended up putting both into one of my galleries as I truly couldn’t decide one over the other….not like me, I’m usually very decisive!!! Have a great week…blessings!!

    Well that is quite a contrast and illustrates the diversity of your talents Kirt. I agree with the tower off to the side the other buildings are more noticeable. In the first one I didn’t even really see the other structures.

    I always love your Fauvism pieces – so bright and cheerful! I like the Space Needle off-centre – to me, the more dynamic composition suits the bright colours and active brushstrokes in the sky.

      Thanks for the feedback Diane!!! It was a fun piece for me to create….I really was stuck between the two…so put both into one of my galleries. Seattle sky never looked so colorful!! 😀

    Hi Kirt! Hope you are doing well and that you are full swing into the holidays with your family nearby😊
    It is so funny…my first thought was I was drawn to the one with the Space Needle off center, but then I looked at them a couple times and somehow the centered one spoke to me more. Maybe I am craving balance😉 Either way I love them both!
    Many Blessings, Kirt.

      Thus the reason I couldn’t pick one over the other….they both draw for different reasons! Hope all is well with you and that you have a blessed holiday season!! Thanks for stopping by Lorrie!

    I’m sure you will understand why I prefer the upper image, Kirt. When I first moved to Seattle, I worked at the base of Queen Anne. I lived for about a year up by Woodland Park, and sneaking over the back way, I frequently stopped at Kerry Park. That top image is the image I remember, even thought the skyline is dramatically different today.

    Thanks for the memory jog!

      My pleasure Dan….the skyline has had 20+ cranes building new high-rises for at least the last two to three years solid….I remember seeing something like that in Denver back in the oil boom days of the 80’s, but not since then. The amount of construction is amazing…most due to Amazon and their IT initiative…..thanks for stopping by!!

    Kirt, these are so cool. The technique adds a lot to the composition. I’ve probably said that green is my favorite color, but I particularly love the pinks in that first one. Fabulous work. Hugs.
