Woman in the Street

I started out with high hopes for this one but they slowly sank or rather, settled lower than I wanted.

I think that adding in the coloured lights would have meant making a different painting. One that was darker. So leaving out the neon is not the problem. Yes you do get a sense of place but no sense of drama well at least not the sense of drama I had hoped for.

Any thoughts?

The reference photo is another one taken during the recent trip to New York.
