City Reflections

 Close ups

Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to The Blame it on the Rain Challenge at DPW presented by  the very talented  Debra Bryant.
Her challenge: Create a painting showing rain.
In my previous post I said I rarely do cityscapes. Well, dang!'s another one!!
.This was originally painted for the Street View Challenge of Aug. 15th. I changed it considerably by adding more lights and rainy reflections. Below is my original painting from that challenge.
Thanks for a great challenge, Debra!
C&C welcome.
 I added a lot of wet reflections for my version of a rainy scene at the top of this post.

 Jeremiah 14:22     Are there any among the false gods of the nations that can bring rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Are you not he, O Lord our God? We set our hope on you, for you do all these things.


  1. Love the wet reflections in the street, Dean
    Beautifully painted!

  2. Une très belle interprétation de la vie en ville... Il n'est pas simple de capturer l'atmosphère accompagnée de ses lumières, de ses couleurs... et la rendre vivante. Vous y avez parfaitement bien réussi.
    Très joli travail.

    Gros bisous

  3. I do like your latest cityscape even better than your last, Dean. I think it is because of all the lights! Sets a cheery and Christmas like mood for me, which I love. And? I so prefer rainy days. I'm not sure why, but I just love them!

  4. You are certainly showing rain in your Challenge of your city scape Dean, well done.

  5. Feels like a rainy day to me, love the reflections. I have said this before but you paint all subjects just wonderful.

  6. Good morning Dean!... Your Traffic piece here depicts and captures so wonderfully... the colour... lights... traffic action and the vertical sense which one encounters in any city.

    Add the shiny pavement and you certainly can easily conjur up "Rainy Day Feelings"... a favourite song of mine by Gordon Lightfoot.

    Thanks for the nice "wake up" this morning! My java tastes even better!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  7. I love cityscapes and these are beautifully done.
    Very exciting work.

    1. Thank you, Mary! And thanks for visiting my blog!
