Gold Hill, Shaftsbury Dorset 9.5 x 13 inches

A powerful painting Mark, the buildings really stand out against the subdued but expertly painted background. You have my admiration getting up so early.

Really like this! Such a strong painting, Mark

Nice work Mark.. I love an early bird session... Then in my case worm catching consists of coffee bar and bacon butty..

Super work Mark, must be a tricky perspective but works very well.

Smashing painting Mark, great perspective and beautiful depth. wonderful scene and colours.

Great painting, Mark. Love the perspective.

Thanks everyone for your comments. This is a very easy one for dawn painting. Car park free until 8 and no one around except for market traders setting up and a few photographers with tripods. I think the sunset might be better as the light would be catching the cottages, but the pub behind me would be full.

Excellent painting Mark, of what I would think is a difficult scene to get the perspective correct.

Great composition, palette and atmosphere Mark.

Hang on Studio Wall

Got up at dawn to paint at Gold Hill in Shaftsbury, Dorset. This is mixed media acrylic and watercolour on Saunders Waterford.
