Hi Artlover,

The pic(painting) looks like South Europe. I think if you make the colors something warmlyer it looks more South of Franche.

Nice job on all the figures, looks very realistic. I do like the suggestion KTusa has given, but I'm always influenced by color. Your call....Lenore

I think this is very beautifully done. I do like the palette as is, but I think some of the buildings could use more warming to suggest that the tents/umbrellas are for shade rather than rain :) I really, really, like it, though.

Great work!

I like it subdued....just as it is.....true....it looks a little more like a rainy day....
perhaps it would be easier to change the title than the painting......
and you'd be braver than I to risk loosing this wonderful feel.......yd

I like the subdued colors. It is much more beautiful than the gaudy colors of the lower painting and reflects the mood so much better. Nice job.

Hi Brian, as usual a masterful piece of work! With just the slightest touches of 'sheen' it would be rain as has already been well said. The low key gray scenario is fetching! It is a general truth that the greater number of people are drawn to warm colors rather than cool...it may be so. I do myself find a sense of joy and comfort in the warm version. The reality though is well taken...we have both!
