Rainy Day Shopping on Spadina

24x24 oil on canvas
I've painted this scene a couple of times, but I wanted to visit it again, trying to capture the misty rainy feeling of the day. It should be a "fun" scene to paint with so much going on, but this also makes it difficult to bring the two sides (bright signage, misty background) together. It was more about leaving out details and looking at what made the image interesting.
This painting will be available at the Toronto Outdoor Art Show, Nathan phillips Square, July 5, 6, 7.

This is a lovely work and the misty effect is great.

How gorgeous. An amazing painting.
I would love to see you at the outdoor art show, but I think I'll be on the road out of town. I know you'll do well.

XO Barbara
