Acrylics and oils on paper,size 10x14 inches.
The picture shows the Gateway to Liverpool's China town.
This is the largest gateway outside of China,it was made in Shanghai and then shipped to Liverpool.
I am sorry about the poor picture quality due to reducing the pixcels to conform with the 100 KBS..

I have done some more work to it,but i still can not get a good photo of it!,maybe due to clash of colors on the gateway,so this will have to do!

Looks good to me. I would consider enhancing the shadows. With a blue sky I would expect strong shadows. Choose a suitable sun direction.

It's looking very good! My suggestion would be to grey the color in the surrounding buildings just a tad, so that the archway stands out more. But that might be hard to accomplish at this point - can you glaze them? Anyway, it's still wonderful as is. Nice work!

Wow, that's a complex scene to paint! Love that arch and all the detail that makes it stand out - nice job on a very hard to paint scene.
