MY COMMENTS:
Main consideration was color scheme. I thought orange overall with dk blue in the bus and car, but actually developed into overall red with the complementing green in the bus window.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
any.ps., the value contrast between the near vehicles and rest of ptg is not as great as shown in this photo.

It is really a beautiful painting. Very sensitive and the limited palette makes it that way. I think that it is quite an accomplishment and you should be proud of it. I tried to look at it in a larger format to see the detail, but it is lost in the low resolution. I wanted to see what the circled item was. It wants to fit in as a vehicle in the background, but it is too dark to recede. I think it is some traffic item on the same line as the traffic lights, but I would remove it as it looks like some dark vehicle in the distance. Either that or make it look like the other traffic lights. It's a little confusing. Otherwise, it's perfect. :p

Very nice Paul .. I agree with Londondeon on the value of that little square .. it does pop more than it should .. at least I think so.

This has an admirable simplicity - colours and composition are well suited. I would like to see a larger image, though.

Paul, this is absolutely beautiful. Agree on the speck but other than that, the composition is perfect to me. I really love your soft city paintings. Makes me want to explore.

I always enjoy your work. I like this one in particular.

Generally your paintings feel, to me, like they are just at the start of dusk, which is my favourite time of day.

Wonderful. Your photogenic portrayals are remarkable. Love the sepia-like tone on this one - very nostalgic...

London, that object does look better in the real ptg. , like it is part o f the other street lights, which it is. Perhaps I need to make that connection better-make the wire a little more obvious, or chg value. I'll look at it again.
Moose, yes, that is the time of day. Everyone, thank you very much!
