Rainy Day in Chinatown, Toronto

12x12 oil on stretched  canvas
Whenever I looked at the painting from the previous post, I felt cold and wet. (My intention but still uncomfortable) I wanted something with a little more warmth to it, so I chose a scene that demanded  more color, although I still kept most colors subdued.
This scene is on Spadina near Dundas Street in Toronto's Chinatown. The lights from the stores just glistened on this rainy day.

Another wonderful painting. You make a cold gloomy city actually look like a great place to be. A new fan.
