A new private project. Melancholic atmosphere from small deserted American town in 50's, picture inspired by my trip to US.
Let me know any critics, I would like to make more in this theme and welcome some thoughts.

All in PS with wacom intuos.

I don't know if it's postapocaliptic town or just abandoned. Sky is made not so good -> at right we see yellow light and on the left there is a blue one. Composition of colours is perfect, balanced but logic of that light coming from clouds is not good. Perspective ideal. I love the fance, both fences on the right. Brown tree parts on the left centre looks as if you had no time to end it. Or just forget to made it better. Cars are masterpiece, broken windows, broken doors. Light on the road is realy great. It looks like you made many mistakes, but it is not true, a little mistakes in really good piece of art. As always.
What do you think?

I would like to say you have created one admirably amazing work of art. :) It is very noticeable by the quality and how you put every little detail in this work that you have done your best efforts. Also, I noticed the shading and lighting you have put in here, which also makes you painting look very realistic.
It is extremely difficult to find something for you to improve on, perhaps someone else can, but I'm sorry that I cannot. I really think you should keep working on different scenery and keep doing what your doing, I love your art and please continue! :heart:

I read the criticism regarding your sky in this painting. To your defense I must say that living in northern Florida all my life skies like this are quite common. What would create this effect would be a low sun angle a mostly cloudy sky with some breaks to allow the shafts of sunlight to shine clearly through. It would appear that a storm front or thunderstorm looms off in the distance on the right. The leaves appear to be blowing across the street so an outflow boundary is passing. I would say bad weather is coming. The ghost town look reminds me of the economically depressed small towns who once were thriving 'American Pie' communities. A sad and beautiful picture of the remains of 'Americana'.

thewatchfulleye has been stealing your work! It is all over their gallery. They are claiming it as 'their' apocalyptic work. Just in case anyone hasn't told you, I wanted you to know.

Love it, but I am curious where you found the inspiration.

Disturbing.  It makes me want to find out the story behind it.  The boarded windows are made with untreated wood that looks newer.  Maybe a survivor lives there.  I wish I could explore the town.

I wish that too.
