I love these wet street at dusk paintings. Exceptional! Do you use a black gesso ground? And it's fun to find another Canadian painter. Cheers!

Love the painting, Catherine. The reflections are perfect.

Martha Cowan said...

This is so beautiful. That this is primarily a dark value painting is rare. The reflections are so great!

I called my daughter over to show her these rain-drenched scenes, Catherine.She was thrilled! Your use of darks set you aside as a painter. Is there a big solo exhibition looming in your Christmas season?

Love this city scene!!!

Susan Roden said...

Another wonderful rainscape - but the way you create them Catherine, makes such an inviting scene. Rainy days can be so damp and dreary yet yours have an inviting feel so that you want to snuggle-in and stare out the window!

Fabulous! Can's get enough of those incredible reflections!

Kelley Sanford said...

What a fabulous rich painting. Great composition.

Another winner coming from one who appreciates value control they way you do it!

Another beauty, Catherine. The angle of the car at right and the subtle sweeping strokes on the road surface take you right into this piece. Love the warm reflections of the headlights, too.

I love all these paintings. So glad to have found this blog.

Dana Cooper said...

Hard to pick but I think this is one of my favorites Catherine. I love the sense of depth you have created!

wow - ok - i'm just going to sum up in one comment - your wet & dark cityscapes - stunningly beautiful, moody, evocative, make me homesick (and i never knew i missed NYC!), rich deep & laden - i can't say enough about them - they're wonderful! the greys, the colors, the contrasts . . . thank you!
