"Occidental Park" Seattle city scenes, cityscape oil painting

I bring you one more cityscape of my hometown Seattle before I start posting a new series of flower paintings. Another rainy day scene, this time heading west on South Main St. by the little tram depot. Since most of this painting is foreground with a high horizon, the challenge was to get enough interest into the textures,colors and reflected light to draw the viewer into the scene.
