Interesting composition , it`s got depth.

The zebra stripes look a little bright , but you may be layering more on top ....
Use black with caution , it can look flat and life less , but then again , you may still layer more color on top ?
I try to limit the use of black and look for very dark substitutes , the burnt umber colors , or maybe a dark ultra marine like color .
Perhaps you could pick out the darkest colors of the picture and push it into the street surface later to unify the picture .

Just a suggestion , maybe darken and saturate the colors some more in areas of the brick work and windows closest to the viewer , and reduce the value as the building recedes further into the distance , giving the illusion of aerial perspective , as the colors get paler into the distance. Same with the clouds , they have perspective too , and maybe they are a little strong and placed very central to the sky. You may well be doing a lot more work on all of this .

I think the light pole may be disproportionally high and a little distracting to an otherwise quite pleasing composition.

I think hard to make comment just yet , as it`s a little early into the piece.

Looking forward to seeing more of this . Please update when you can .
