This painting came about after I was experimenting with trying to achieve a Bokeh effect with acrylics with a warm sunset scene. This particular view of Sodermalm is quite famous being seen from the commuter train and road system leading south from the center of Stockholm. As its still cold and frosty with the rivers partly frozen over I added a touch of frost to the rooftops and windows and icy sections on the river.
Creating the Bokeh effect was very rewarding, I was pleased with the result achieved and the warmth it added to the painting. For those (like me initially) who don’t know what Bokeh is, it’s the circles of abstract light often seen partially out of focus and overlapping when taking photos. The example below was found on the Deviant art site, by Carudo.
