Sunshine on a Rainy Day - Urban Painting

11 x 14 Oil on Linen Panel
$495 framed

Well, this is the final painting.  I pumped up some of the reflections and emphasized the warm sunlight against the cool pavement.  Then I pulled on some of the paint to give the illusion of rain.  I kept the background trees fuzzy and diffused to help push them into the background.

Hi Wendy - your a sweetie and very kind to leave a message. I'm really enjoying these urban scenes. This photo was taken in Vancouver when we were there this Spring. Hope you are well.
