The color is beautiful and the atmospheric sense is wonderful. I think the texture adds to this. The rather centralized heavier swatch of texture reminds me of falling rain showers. The value patterns are wonderful as well. You are a master at the cityscape Karel.

Another very nice painting. I can't find anything wrong with this so to nit pick I would only suggest that you change some of the building colors to break up the bands of color which give the whole painting a striped effect. But perhaps it was your intent to create stripes?? Regardless I like this alot!

This is just wonderful; one of your best. I think it delivers a great sense of dusk; the hues and value control is terrific. When I see the close up, I notice a lot of curving lines which the paint goes over. Are these brush strokes of how you toned the canvas before putting the oil? Just curious; I get that sometimes.

My only suggestion for improvement is that I don't like the line up of the five lights. It's too regular and contrasts compositionally with the beautiful random forms of the buildings behind.

I really enjoy all of your paintings/ very creative intepretations. I happen to like the lights as they evoke the highway following the river bank. I think it's a great piece!

Spyderbabe - Oke, Thanks!

Crazywoman - Yes, I was intent to paint stripes! :D

Bob - You could be right about the five lights. Gesso toned the canvas!
