Hi fellow WDE'ers I liked all the images--and this one called me--I changed it to night time and was so indecisive about color so
I made it monochromatic--I may do more with it later--(maybe I will add jack the ripper) It was fun to work on --thanks flawless! time to look at everyone elses!!
oh! it is 11 x 18 oil paint on canvas

I love the monochromatic palettes going on today and this is no exception. Wonderful loose brush strokes and textures. :clap: :clap:

Very spooky Celestia but I really like it. So moody. With a few brush strokes you have definitely conveyed a mood. Great job :clap: :clap:

Very cool- your interpretation of this scene is quite unusual, and it really has an interesting feel to it. This is my first WDE, and I am having a great time seeing everyone's work. I really am enjoying this experience. Thank you for sharing your work.

:) The perspective , depth , feel to it is just superb. Why do anything else to it ? I love this kind of impressionistic stuff. Looks like it came so easily to you, a real gem .

You'd better hang on to this one and frame it!! That's the kind of brushwork I wanna do some day! The monochrome is great.
I think I see "Jack" standing just inside the doorway in the distance. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Well you wouldnt catch me walking down a ginnel (alleyway) like that on my own - you have really made it sinister and atmospheric - definitely could pass for Jack the Rippers Whitechapel haunt - well done.
Oh sheesh, I can imagination Jack the Ripper wandering down there, this is fabulous, very, very atmospheric, creepy too, but good stuff.

WOW!!!!! This is really sharp!!!!!!!!!!! love your brushwork and the lack of color and darkness it exudes.

You have really made this your own. I struggle to break out, but am too compulsive so far. Good work!

:clap: Great!! I can also already see Jack in there! Or the guy hiding in one of these old doorways in "The third man". Have you seen the movie? Similar atmosphere!

Great interpretation!! I really like the mono color scheme and your imaginative change to nightime. Way to go!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm finally getting around to looking at this - it's lovely. I'm so taken with the fact that you achieved such luminosity with a mono palette. And those brush strokes! Yummm.

It's a beautiful painting, Scary night. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Gorgeous juicy brush strokes, and the slight leaning-in feeling at the top really emphasizes the height of the buildings. (I feel more Charles Dickens-y about this scene, than Jack TR, but then I'm a wee bit of a chicken-heart :D :D ) LOVE the tonal values you have achieved here- this is really a special painting- got it all, composition, technique,intrigue, well done indeed !! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I really like your interpretation of this photo, especially the loose brush strokes and the monochromatic color scheme. I've been waiting for you to add Jack the Ripper, but maybe some other time! :clap: :clap: :clap:

i LOVE the pool of light on the street! And those brushstrokes are so full of energy, they vibrate! I don't get a spooky feeling at all from this. Just glowing, luminous buildings, and that wonderful light at the end of the "tunnel." I don't know why, but I have the impression there's a really good restaurant right around the bend. Maybe I just need to eat breakfast. ;)
