A Good Day to Wear Red

This street scene was fun to paint, capturing reflections on a misty day. This scene was one where, as a painter, you must remind yourself that you are not painting buildings, cars, and figures, but rather shapes and values. There is a lot going on in the scene but I think the strong focal point makes all the supporting elements believable. Actually I could have simplified those elements even more.
Painting is 10x8 on mounted canvas.


  1. It's easy to recognize the place,and very nice colors and shapes!
