SPRING SUNSHINE IN THE BOTANIC GARDENS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Wednesday was a sunny day so I cycled out to get some more information for a painting I was planning. This park was close to my area of interest, so I stopped by and I couldnt resist this contra jour scene of the old Victorian gatehouse to the park and the people enjoying the afternoon sunshine.

Other local scenes are available on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

    • Thanks Chris. I thought it was a good idea at the time, but now I’m not so sure. I put in the tree trunk to explain the shadow and got constrained by it. I might get rid of the trunk, as the light glistening branches imply its presence and then have some freer shadows in the foreground. It’s one of the reasons why I use this blog – to reflect on my painting.
