You absolutely NAILED a 1950s illustration style! (even a 1930s style in childrens' books as well).

What more can I say? Great break up of the color and balance between color and line. Very fast lines without much detail, in quite a simplification. One would often see this kind of thing in architectural renderings when you had to populate it with place holder figures, but needed to sell the overall effect and get the focus to not be on the figures, but rather either the melieu or architecture, or both. Wet streets were always a winner since they became dazzling over gray concrete for interest. Plus they were relatively easy to do since architecture tended to be very vertical. So those vertical reflections were a perfect continuation of the lines.

Great job, Enug!

absolutely wonderful you nailed it just like mr D said. Painting rain is a task I yet have never mastered. Lovely paint all together thanks for sharing!

a beautiful little painting, you should use the print feature in the latest AR ( by MILK) I had "joyful village" printed as a post card just to see what they would look like and they came out great! not too expensive and they made a great gift.. I can see this would be perfect as a post card..!..

I love the loose style of this. Plenty of playful shapes and transitions and a good color pallet. Reminds me of Portland except for the umbrellas, we don't tend to bother much with umbrellas. ;-)

Thanks everyone for looking and saying all that lovely stuff about my effort to capture a rainy day. The weather has cheered up now - perhaps it's been matching my mood! However, it's winter so more is to be expected. :(
