There are so many directions I could co with exploring bright abstract textures as I did in my new art – Toronto Skyline Cityscape – that I am thinking this may well become a series, I enjoyed it so much. Creating digital art forces me to push past the “rules of photography” and sometimes it is weirdly challenging for me to change a really beautifully composed sharp photograph. Even though I know I have the original and will always have the original and I am about to create new art beyond the confines of the photo. To push past any imagined obstacles I must explore what is within to create the art, even if that means changing what might be “the norm”. It’s both scary and freeing at the same time. I broke my photo of Toronto Skyline into its composite parts to build it into something else entirely.
The direction was rather unexpected, I know now to keep going with it. For example using bright colours and abstract art as my textures and backgrounds. If you follow my art you’ll know I love bright colours rather than subdued… however Toronto Skyline Cityscape challenged me even there… to go sunburst bright with multiple colours. I am so pleased I tried it, not seeking perfection but seeking to see what new I could achieve. And let’s face it, we NEED more colour, the bolder the better.
I hope this colourful Toronto City Skyline art composition lifts your spirits as much as it did mine in its creation. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday. It’s available for sale at Nicky Jameson Art and my plan is for a limited edition run. . Check out Toronto City Skyline Art on my Instagram as well, I’ve linked it below.

Toronto Skyline Cityscape I love Skylines. I am fortunate that I can both photograph the beautiful Toronto Skyline from one of the best vantage points ever (Toronto Island) and then take that photograph into another dimension and turn it into art. For this composition I was inspired to do the Toronto Skyline using bright abstract texture as a change from my more photo realistic compositions. I took my photo last year (so no flooding to worry about). I first of all gave my photograph a painterly treatment then used masks and layers to control where I wanted what. It’s best seen large so I will post the link in the comments. I love the bright ? : : : #artistsofinstagram, #digitalart, #digitalpainter, #art, #photograph #fineartphotography, #toronto, #thesix, #the6ix, #paint,, #torontoskyline, #skyline, #artforsalebyartist, #photoartistry #nickyjamesonart, #nickyjamesonphotography
