Pretty greens and blues in Jasper 2

Even though I worked on this streetscape over several days, I had a hard time with the green for some reason. The color would not lay evenly and even slicked up and separated some yellow out.  I don’t think I ever used this particular color so thickly and I am not sure I like the way it performed.  The color is interesting though and makes quite a statement.  Looking at it after some days remove, I think I need to rework the area at the left corner, under the overhang.  It looks slightly wonky to me and I think a small adjustment with the pen will fix it.  I still like all of the vivid colors that the store owners have chosen.

Now, here are two older pieces for the challenge.  I looked at quite a few of my older works and I have used far more of them in the early days than I thought I did.  I selected several and looked back to see if I had published them before and unfortunately I have used most of what I had.  Still, here are two more.

I saw Mr. Lion at a zoo and I took the photo for the creamery while I was at a family wedding in northern California.  The creamery photo is under glass already so the colors are not precisely true.
