Silver Light, Queen Street

8x8 oil on canvas
Just before the sun disappeared behind the buildings, this "silvery light" cast shadows on Queen Street in Toronto. When the sun starts to go "down" at this time of year, there is a very small window of opportunity to capture it. The City TV building can be seen in the background.

Catherine, I love the cast shadows and highlights! Your painting reminds me a little bit of one of my favorite artist, Edward Hopper.

Very cool! I love your color palette, accurate for this time of year. That setting sun color is so different. Great shadows!

Incredible!
I've been away. When did this "cityscape noir" develop? It's great.
