Cold Toronto Night

8x8 oil on canvas
Often I like to do a smaller study before taking on a large canvas. There were a lot of things I liked about this picture..the steam, the reflections and the colour combination. A small study helps in the process, but painting large is the only way to find out how it will look on a large scale.
Thanks to John Tavares for the photo reference.

Your paintings always amaze me. They are so real, yet still have that true painterly feel. Love it, love it love it!!
