San Francisco in the Rain

Oh how I love painting night scenes of San Francisco in the rain. This is the corner of Market Street and Powell.

Normally I like to paint in plein air but not at night in the rain, especially when it is cold. I used the photo below the painting as my reference. I took the liberty to paint how I felt about this scene making it a little darker giving it an air of mystery and more old fashioned than reality.
