BOLD STREET, LIVERPOOL- WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1090790(1)

I’ve done it before, and with my compulsive streak, will probably do it again. I came out of Central Station the other Saturday morning on my way to life drawing and looked up the street into the light and took a couple of photos of a fairly empty Bold Street. This time I think I got the greyness and feel with some loose washes of blues purples and greys.

There is a sense of tired resignation at this hour with the inhabitants dragging their reluctant shadow along towards a shot of caffeine.

EARLY EVENING DRINKS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

This was from some photos I took in Picton, South Island, New Zealand. I loved the evening light picking out the surfaces and glassware. This is one of a series of cafe scenes I am doing. So I will post more in the near future. I started the series some time ago, but got waylaid with other projects. Let’s see how far I get this time.
