Club St. Shophouse

This is a scene from a little street in Chinatown called Club St.  I've been wanting to paint this little shophouse for almost a full year, but I just haven't gotten it right.  The colors on the house were just so much fun, and around dusk the light is changing quickly and casting amazing shadows.  Nevertheless, every time I tried to paint it, I had the perspective wrong, composition didn't work, colors didn't work.  I must have painted and re-painted it four times.  Finally, I just left it.  Today I saw the reference photos again, and I decided to try and tackle it again.  Success.
