  • Thank you Dennis, it’s growing on me and lovely comments like yours surely help.

  • See your point with the red but I think it leads in as well to the post box and warm faces. Think it’s great.

  • Thank you Brian I think you are right there are two ways to look at it.

  • It looks great to me, Barry. I think the red post box leads your eye in before you glance to the right. Brilliant.

  • Yes, I would have changed the colour Barry, the red sun blind and post box are great. However, another very successful piece with good contrast.

  • Thanks Alan as you can see from my comments I am on the waiver re the red buildings, maybe the only solution is to paint another version.

  • I think it’s a smasher Barry. Unless you really want to keep the lamp post on the right, you could crop that part of the building out without disturbing the seated figure, and if there are still traces of the red, darken them off to a shadow . Or, you could take some of the strength out of the red, so it doesn’t grab the eye too much.
    Still like it as it is though Barry.
