Umbrellas on Dundas Street, Toronto

12 x 12 oil on board
Back to a rainy day scene with this picture of colourful umbrellas on Dundas and University in Toronto. I'm adding a few more colours for this rainy scene, but still keeping it very muted and atmospheric.
For this scene I used a very popular palette of Ultramarine blue, alizarin, yellow ochre, cadmium yellow dark and light, cadmium red, titanium white.
Pedestrians wait to cross the street or head to the subway station at Dundas and University in Toronto during a down pour.

This has an interesting abstract quality...almost a checkerboard of darks and lights. Really nice.
