This is Granville Island on a fall morning. The downtown buildings are tall and willowy, like flowers turning towards the sun, while Granville Island is all crazy and bright. I wanted to emphasize the contrast of Granville Island and the Vancouver cityscape. There are some metallics, so parts of the painting glow when the light hits it.
Whenever I go over the Cambie Street bridge on a fall morning, I always notice the soft, warm light hitting the buildings and the green-and-yellow cast to the water.
