BIRKDALE VILLAGE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I posted a sunlit painting of a snicket along the railway track a few days ago. If you continue down that snicket, it comes out on the right, in what they call Birkdale Village – part of Southport, where I live. Here you are actually standing on the rail track with part of the station, the building on the far right.

I think it was the old phone box, lit by the early morning sun that caught my eye and the fact that the sixties carbuncle, on the left – the Spar supermarket – is mellowed and put in the shade by the light coming in over it. Colours are subdued with hints of spring leaves in the background.

A quiet scene of morning stirrings in the suburbs.

    • Thanks Chris. I’m not sure why the tonal range appears small, but I’m using most of the keys as Ron Ranson used to say. It ranges from the white of the paper to some thick mixes of um blue and burnt sienna – so you cant get much wider .Perhaps the lights are tiny patches not set against the darkest darks. Except for the phone box, but the dark there is a purple red.
