Pittsburgh from across the Mon

I've been messing around with painting since around 2002. That's like junior year of high school for me. ​ I started with oil paint markers, made by DecoColor. I continued to use paint markers until 2016, when I finally started using brushes, all thanks to some "drink and paint" nights with my wife. ​ I've always enjoyed painting and drawing skylines, which grew into skylines with clouds, then with trees, then with bridges. I've started adding other stuff like people and boats. We'll see where that goes. ​ With a history of painting patterns and straight lines, I've spent the last two years trying to be more expressionistic with impressionism, while also trying to have more of an emphasis on how light affects objects.
