I have been wanting to do this painting for a while. I tried to get the effect of light bouncing all around the subway car from the reflected stainless steal surfaces, the florescent light and the weird light that comes in through the windows. That light tends to wash out colors and give everything kind of a green cast. This photo is more yellow than the painting actually is. The man up front is so interesting looking to me. I may paint a portrait of him later. I would love to know his story.
