Subway Station Shelter



20" x 16"
Oil on Canvas
I wanted to do something with a little more color. When doing a city scene, objects need to relate to the scenery around them, so that the perspective isn't lost. with bold colors, this is harder to do.
This is a scene from Union Station in downtown Toronto. People are heading down to the subway or Go Transit. A line of Taxicabs wait on the street.

I do love the color! You are the master of reflections! And, I love the foggy sky!

The colors are gorgeous. How do you manage to finish your paintings so fast?

Thanks for the comments everyone. Kay, the only way I can finish these larger paintings is by staying with them for several hours at a time, until I am so sick of painting it I have to get away from it. I then leave it in the studio and decide if it is finished. Also, when painting "wet into wet" its necessary to have a large block of time to get most of the areas done at one time.(if you have a full time job, juggling art can be difficult..I only work part time.)
