British rule over India brought beautiful architecture to Mumbai. This is the originating terminal for one of the city’s largest railway lines used by millions every day. This painting interprets the station in a variety of pastels with quick, short brushstrokes to mirror the constant hustle and bustle of the city below.
Little Rock native Kristen Hess has been taken captive by the rich colors and thick textures of oil paints since 2005. Her work combines the effect of light on her subjects with expressive brushstrokes, creating movement and depth in her pieces. Her representational style along with an extensive background in drawing come together with the atmospheric colors of the impressionists to create paintings that capture the emotion of the place or subject.
