Yay for the new forum
I painted this a few weeks ago. It is city scene featuring an Italian bistro and theater in the downtown area of my small city.
Bhavani: so nice to see you in the new forum.
Wow this is a really fabulous. Great light and color, Bravo.

bhavani, such a beautiful rendering of the beauty that is in seemingly ordinary scenes.
I admire the way you handled some complicated passages, at least complicated to me.

Hi Bhavani, really nice job on this. It's beautiful! The underlying drawing is excellent and you hit just the right notes - warm color, long shadows - to show a late afternoon scene. I like the color of your shadows. I can see the influence of the painters you mentioned in the "Artists" thread. Impressive!

Derek, Gary, Trier, Annie, George and Jan
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Totally made my day. This painting is special to me as I have been wanting to do cityscapes for a while but my drawing lacked. So have been developing my drawing skills for the past few months and with this painting I now feel confident to tackle architecture and cityscapes :)

Very nice job... I like how you've re-interpreted some of the colors of the actual location to make a better palette!

Nice, it has a sense of place and a modern feel.

Great painting Bhavani. (Or "George" ;) )
Nice balance with the foliage of the trees down the street to soften the hard landscape.
