A Spring Afternoon on First Avenue

I haven't forgotten about my Pike Place Market painting, but I want to take more photos. In the meantime, this is what I'm working on now, a work-in-progress from a photo taken not far from Pike Place Market.

This is an 8x10, and I think I should have used a larger format, as this scale seemed to result in difficulties with necessary details. Live and learn. I also need a mahlstick. But I'm pretty happy with the values and the color scheme so far.

(This particular image seems to have colors that are washed out just a little - I may come back and repost a better image.)
