South Bank London

Lovely misty effect.

Super painting.

You have created a lovely atmosphere on this one Mark, love the group of figures.

This is great, Mark. Very atmospheric, a success!

I'm an admirer of your style of painting Mark. This is excellent work.

Thank you everyone for your comments. It was when I put in the blue/grey mist and a white highlight on the figures that it suddenly worked.

Beautifully done and the works holds the viewer in with those highlights(i mean the whites of the surface)! Brilliant!

Love the painting with the misty effect.

I really like this painting, Mark. So atmospheric.

And thanks some more. I should say the sharp highlights on the figures and lights are added in with Dr Martin's bleedproof white.

This is gorgeous. Love the tonal emphasis

I love your pictures.

Hang on Studio Wall

The Tate Modern had this mist installation and I thought it would be a challenge to get that mist in a watercolour. This is all done using the paper white on Saunders Waterford hi white with Daniel Smith paints.
