James Street Showers, Hamilton Ontario

12x12 oil on canvas
The colorful buildings in the background on this section of James Street added some interesting colors on this rainy day. The cyclist, on his commute home, also added a nice focal point. We don't have this much greenery yet, but a couple of weeks should see the soft green buds on the trees. I think this will be one that I want to try on a larger scale.

Your wet streets are so real! Amazing how a few strokes of the brush, like magic, transports the viewer to a rainy Toronto Street.
Happy Spring,
Kim

This is a beautiful painting. Loose and detailed at the same time. Excellent wet streets. Great composition. A winner.
