Canada Place Promenade

Canada Place Promenade

I usually paint urban landscapes by pouring my paints but I decided to try painting one a more traditional way.
Please let me know what you think.

I did enjoy painting a Vancouver scene with it being sunny instead of the usual grey and rain.
However, Vancouver has a city ordinance where the buildings are to be built all grey and green.
Strange in a city that is already grey and green.
Canada Place Promenade is a well known tourist attraction and where the big cruise ships dock.
The Promenade is a walk across Canada since it names all the provinces and the more well known cities within each province along the sidewalk.

I am teaching urban landscapes on Mar 11-12 at the Monterey Centre in Victoria, BC.

Leslie, I had no idea Vancouver had that ordinance!
As for the painting, do you really want to know what I think?

Hello again, Leslie. I had to take another look. It wouldn't be hard to zap it up a bit, but not if your feelings are "meh" right now about it.

Thanks Steven. Kathryn, I think I figured out how to approach it. I may wait to return on this one but am now excited to give the urban scene another try. Thanks for your input and for helping me to realize how much of myself I do put into my painting.
