Realistic paintings of rainy New York City

Ever saw a painting so real you thought it was a photograph?

Artist Karen Woods painted hyperreal images of New York city though the window of a rainy car and all of them had us doing a double-take. The paintings are incredibly detailed and provide an interesting perspective on what it’s like to travel through the streets of the big apple. There’s no cliche cityscape for Woods. She provides us with a new way to look at the city streets, which are beautiful no matter the weather. The light distortion created by the drops of water remove the viewer from the city location and entice us to find out more. We loved Woods’ paintings; take a look at some of our favorites!
