This one is amazing.....I'm sure you heard it a million times. From the framing to how the lines draw you in. It really is a great piece of work. You really get a sense how wet the streets are. The buildings and overall palette is gloomy, but you can still get a sense of energy and vivaciousness within the work.

It seems like a place I would love to set myself in....either just by people watching, or actually partaking with the crowd.

Great use of colors too and enough brushstrokes to make it look like there's a crowd gathering at the marketplace.

Another wonderful piece!

This makes my heart ring clear like the crisp sound of a sharply struck chime...

It reminds me of being in Quebec City one day,

It was such a great day, and it was so great wandering around the old part of the city throughout the rainy day...

This is truly an amazing piece. The foggy atmosphere really fits the scenery and the colors against the neutral hues really make this picture painting pop. The reflections cast into the ground are also a very effective touch and this whole scene just really reminds me of something from my past. Like my early childhood after a rainy day when we went out and ran errands downtown. Dude your pieces are really nostalgic and they are really infused with your passion for art. Dude seriously keep up the great work. =D

There's something ghost-like about the people going in and through the marketplace... because they're fused with the rain-drenched pavement. I love the "clean" white buildings. There's something haunting about them.

I enjoy the color blending down as though it is dripping. At a glance, it appears like it is a HD, who thought a painting,watercolor could be so vibrant.

The houses in the left lane looks a bit bulged. The person standing alone in the front looks incomplete for some reason.

These are the "flaws" I find. Nevertheless, I wouldn't want to consider it a flaw

you definitely have talent, but i would have preferred more color on the buildings. the white and red unsettles me, but think it is more of a personal preference. Great job either way.

the atmosphere feels like this is a memory, as if there used to be crowds of people bustling down the street
a sort of nostalgic feeling, the ghosts of the past
OR it could be just a rainy day \o/ 
lovely painting either way ouo
