Cliches

Here’s the 5×7 sketch of the picture I’m working on. It’s a skyline picture of Manhattan.

Paintings of the skyline of New York are plentiful, so much that it has become cliche. I think that what a person has to consider is actually what a cliche is.
It’s a tried and true subject matter, something that is beautiful, has been beautiful, and always will be beautiful. It’s something that people can relate to easily.

I think the challenge is to bring something new to old subject matter, make it your own. I hope I’m up to the challenge.
