SPRING EXPLODES ON WALMER ROAD – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1040131(1)a

Yep, another of the local series. Perhaps it was the pollarded tree,  spearing its overgrown branches heavenward, emphasising the outpouring of spring growth, that caught my eye as I walked to the newsagents this early May day. It foretold days of promise with summer yet to come.

Fresh greens and yellows against  purpled shadows – it was pleading to be painted – I couldnt refuse.

    • Thanks Shawn. I was initially worried about those houses, but was pleased how they came out – by just hinting at parts of the buildings, you get the message. And they are really needed as they give a great foil for the leaves.

  1. I too like the building behind/ in the foliage. What really gets me is your shadows, particularly against the building in the left background. In all your work Graham, I find I’m always marveling at the shadows and dappled light.
