almost finished

this is close to the finished painting. I will put this aside for awhile and revisit it later.


  1. Cityscapes are tricky since they are so busy yet need to look right. This scene has come along nicely - it looks interesting and holds the viewer's attention. The golden light works well here.

  2. Thanks Matthew--I have learned alot painting this scene - thanks for your thoughts..regards tom
