Side Street-Scene

Hello ..been working on this today..still a novice when it comes to street scenes--pastel on paper 18x14


  1. Well if you are a novice with street scenes Tom, it does not show to me. Good job, love the feeling you have captured with this one.
    Love the colors too, and the energy the painting portrays, for me, that spells out a busy street scene perfectly!

  2. good to hear from you Rae--I had fun exploring this new subject. I need to pay more attention to correct perspective (Buildings) but overall I was pleased with the painting. I am in the process of painting a large piece from the same locations. So far it is coming along well..thanks tom
