Top of Mill Street

This is the view from the front of the CoOp. This time I painted with light washes of watercolour first and then got into the detail. Gosh, the cars were difficult to paint!

Next time, I think draw the basic shapes in pencil first, develop the painting with light washes and then ... enjoy the detail. This should allow me to keep better control of the pictures focus.

Snow Coffee

This one was done with crayon and watercolour paint whilst suffering from cabin fever due to the recent snow.

I like coffee. When I have a mug it is space to think.

Next time paint all in first in big shapes and then draw on top. If I start with the drawing I get involved with the detail. I have saturated the colours here in Photoshop and will leave this picture for now.
