About a year ago, on August 20th 2014, I did a version of this image in watercolour. I thought I’d give it a go with the style of acrylics have been playing with. I did the original watercolour in portrait format, but decided on a landscape format for this one. In hindsight the portrait format could allow more focus on the point of action. I also wonder whether I am getting too dark in the shadow areas. I think I need some darks but I think I am going too uniformly dark. I will try a more varied approach on my next painting. Well it keeps you busy and off the streets.
