Nice work! I love the reflections of the water on the street. Reminds me of "Singing in the rain".

It really has a bit (post-)impressionistic, almost a bit Van Gogh-y like too and I like it very much. The colours that sort of blur into an unrecognizeable palet make it very expressionistic on it's turn. My only critiscism is the lamppost in the front, with the more whiteish light. I feel like the lightball-thingies should be a bit more fixed, like a bit more tightly round, if you know what I mean. Now you see that little strikes of the palette knife have sort of 'penetrated' the light, but I feel like it would have been a stronger whole if it would have been more of a contrast, especially because the light is so in the front and so bright and white. It doesn't bother me with the lights in the back though.
A very much appreciated and inspired piece all in all.

I love your use of color. It takes my mind to a place of peace and makes me feel like I am right there, standing on the street. You make a street corner, that would normally look dull into something filled with so much light and color. Amazing.

i feel like im actualy in the city walking on the wet street lost in thought on which sidewalk to take, the one lit with calming blue or fiesty yellow
this reminds me alot of where i was born aswell
May i make a suggestion for the sky? If you were blend the colors a little more near the lights, it seems thats where my foscus keeps drawing to instead of the main part of the painting

This is absolutely wonderful art work. You're very skilled with that palette-knife of yours.

Very nice use of color. The warm colors do not compete with the cool colors and the focal point for me of course is the vibrancy of the street lights. I can relate to the scene.

Blah I can't even say anything else I'm just so drawn by the beauty. Very nice style. Instant favorite!

this is truly a masterpiece! i love the fine detail you manage to put into this artwork using relatively big strokes (if that makes sense, i'm bad at explaining...) i especially love the sky and how it changes colour, merging with the buildings on the right. also, i love how the street on the right has more detail and hence contrasts against the other half of the image. the colours are really beautiful and vibrant, you managed to give the floor a really wet feel.

i am checking out the rest of your gallery, because this was an instant +fav for me :)
please continue your awesome work! :wave:
