Silver Light, Queen Street, Toronto

20x20 oil on board
I painted this picture over another monochrome study I did a while ago. I wanted to try and capture the "silvery light" that occurs in early evening when the sun shines through a haze or thin clouds. With the underpainting already done, I was able to do the painting in three and a half hours, keeping it loose.
