Spadina Streetcars in January

 12 x 12 Oil on Canvas
Two Streetcars meet on Spadina Avenue in Toronto on a cold blustery day in January.
For this painting, I used a mix of terra rosa and ultramarine blue and it provided a nice mix of grays for the muted colours that dominated the scene. I also added cadmium red, yellow ochre and titanium white.
To start the painting, I did a fairyl accurate value study using terra rosa and ultramarine blue, applied thinly mixed with mineral spirits.

I love this painting. Very atmospheric! The red is makes a lovely rich contrast against the snow.
