This is early in the morining in Chicago, looking east on the Chicago river towards Lake Michigan.
I wish I could say this is a plaine aire painting but it is done after a photo, my plaine aire last Sunday fell flat. We tried to paint a street scene from Starbucks, but there was no focal point and it was too busy and confusing. So I did this afterwards to make up.

Nicely captured early morning light...I think you both captured the details and kept a spontaneous feel to the piece as well. (It reminds me a little too much of my morning commute but that's not your problem LOL!)
