started this scene . There  will be lights hanging from wire that goes from the one side of the walk way to the other. need to darken some parts of the wall on the right and add some light from the lights on the wall . debating to make the pavement wet with some reflection but it might be to many colors . Excited but also not sure I will mess it up ! :yippee:

Bert,

Wow, great job on this.  So many details and so well executed!

  Reflections would mean the pavement was glassy.

Maybe just hints of shadows on the pavement.

Lovely Bert  :clap:  I would add a few shadows rather than reflections, it would definitely make it too busy.

 :heeha: Wow Bert! I think the upper part of your more distant buildings need to be greyed down a bit for a night scene. When you add the strung lights and some shadows then the brighter roadway will make sense. Can't wait to see this one complete!  :cheering:    :clap:    :cheering:    :clap:    :cheering:   
Cheers, Val
