A TIME TO REFLECT IN THE SUN-ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1030030(1)

Just a bit of fun with this one. I saw some of this as I came out of life drawing in Liverpool and added more bits to it to supply a narrative and add to the pun. I had a bit of a battle with the loose style and all the detail and the detail seems to have won out.

CASTLE STREET ON A SUNNY AUTUMN DAY – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1020610(1)a

Another Liverpool painting. This is of Castle Street, with the town hall behind me and the law courts looming at the end of the street.

The Liver sketching club, where I do some of my life drawing, has moved and their new premises take me down past the town hall. As I came back to the train station after a Saturday morning session I looked into the sun coming down Castle Street. Our urban streets are taking on a continental air with street cafes and in the warm October sunshine Castle Street was no exception – a little different to the last painting I posted which reflects the normal state of play.

Looking at the painting on the screen, I think the girl’s leading leg could do with a little adjustment – a definite advantage of blogging paintings – it gives you a different view of them and a chance to reflect.
