First Snowfall, King Street West

36 in x 48 in Oil on canvas-SOLD
I'm enjoying painting on a larger scale, but as I've mentioned before, any mistakes are BIG mistakes. I did this painting a while back, but was not satisfied with the composition or the light, so I changed several things while doing a repaint. I added the crosswalk to create depth and included more people. The surrounding area is affected by the moving sign on the Canada Life Centre, highlighting nearby objects in pink, purple, or blue.

This is so great. The light, and colour, and the man walking with his jacket open, in the business macho way that men will walk in any weather. Witty and brilliant.
