Hi Dana;

I'm really out of my league trying to comment here. I haven't done any urban scenes and have never tried this style of painting. Soooo, bear that in mind. First the reflections of light on the street really comes across very well. Neat! The only suggestions I can make are (1) to increase the size of the car on the right a bit, and (2) maybe tone down the red on the store towards the upper right just a little bit (I find my eye is drawn to it).

I agree with Jim about the car. Actually, it feels like the left side of the painting is close, ( the woman walking and the building next to her are large). The right side feels far away (the car is small and the buildings have several stories right across the street from the one stories. This may be very acceptable since the painting is quite abstract in nature and actually works well. changing things may ruin it.

I've gazed at it for a while and am enjoying it. It permits me to develop my own narrative which, for me, is good. As I am viewing it almost as an abstract proportions are not so important. I would like to see blocks of colour rather than some of the detail.
But there you go that's just me.

This is great - and I would add one more suggestion - the red overhang towards the left back - it is in the background and I would tone it donw a smidgeon. but awesome work!
