The Modern-Day Mad Men?

I painted this during a workshop I took with Karin Jurick in New York. I wanted to learn how to do cityscapes that were more about the people and less about the buildings.  So I stood in this spot where I liked the shadows and the light and the background, and I waited for the right person to walk by.  After a few minutes this guy strolled by in his nice suit. Perfect!  He was rounding the corner onto Madison Avenue, so here he is:  My modern-day Don Draper.
