challenge victorian house

16x20 oil on canvas

This is the current challenge. I thought that I would put in a street going past St. Peter and Paul church and ending at Coil tower.  I wanted to make it foggy but then got lost. The house photo was with out strong contrast so I couldn't place the sun. I could see the finish of the painting in my head, but it didn't come out that way.  That might have been because i didn't use a photo ref for the rest of the photo. I might just rework it

Putting the composition and the imagination to the test and you DID it! Nice! Wonder if they have snow and cold going on?
