This is amazing! Is this oil or acrylic? Is it on canvas? What a great, interesting work!

It is oil on Masonite panel. I like the smoothness, rigidity and weight of a panel better than canvas.
A lot of people like this painting, but I am not satisfied with it. In the real scene, the blue light was dimmer, greener and murkier than the result I got. It's a hazard of working from photographs, which are often inaccurate in night scenes.
I'm going to post a manipulated version of this painting to show what I really intended. Maybe I'll do the whole painting over again.
But thanks for your comments and I'm glad you like it. MH

I completely agree with you - I prefer panels any day because I can make my underlying drawings on them with charcoal and then change and move my sketch lines as needed. I understand why you're not 100% thrilled with your result, that you want the color in your painting to more exactly match the original scene but, still, this is a painting and not a photograph so we don't expect a perfect representation, especially since we haven't viewed the original scene - this work succeeds brilliantly as it is! If you want to take another shot and match the color better, then more power to you!

I swear when I first saw this I was reminded of an alien abduction video I saw. There was a man on duty and he was near that gate on the left. Hardly any light reached it. He slipped outside and went off visual suddenly there was a flash of light and he was gone. The security tape rolls for I think an hour or two before there is another flash and he appears inside the gate. He vomits and crawls out of view back toward the gate house. The video tape was sent in anonymous.
