  1. Reminds me a bit of William Wray's (WetCanvas member) urban landscapes. I love the light on this one!

  2. Thanks for the post, again, Winston. Hey, I know of William Wray, he's on my links, and I'm flattered by the comparison. He used to work in animation like I did, although he was a much bigger fish in a much bigger pond. I love his stuff. I don't do a lot of urban painting at the moment but over the years have done a fair bit. In fact, Winston, back in the 80's I used to sit out all night in downtown Peterborough painting the buildings and the AGP gave me a show. Peterborough really had the feel of a 1930's Hopper-esque painting. I haven't visited Wray's blog in a month so I'm off for peek...thanks Dianne...
