Clean and crisp it is, and many other things too. There's a difference between open air and interior shading and I think you've caught that very well. Good figure too. Nice work Rupert.

Lovely warecolour work again Rupert, trust the exhibition is a success for you.

Very nice -I hope it's a success Rupert.

I think I could recognize a Cordeux from a mile away with the aid of weak binoculars - the richness and subtlety of the colours is one of the give-aways, which seem, as in the foreground here, to be quite sharply defined and yet still to blend in with the overall image, at a guess because you mix the base colour with the shadow tone, whereas many just lay an indiscriminate dark on the ground/floor over a lighter tone and wonder why it doesn't look natural. And then there are the descriptive, gestural pencil and brush-marks; the compositional excellence; the strong sense of natural light ..... in short, you're too damn' good!

You got very well your aim, Rupert.

Great use of shadows to convey the lighting. Brilliant !!

Gorgeous work Rupert.

Hello Rupert, I’ve left feedback on your blog for ‘help’, I wasn’t sure whether the site would automatically inform you of a reply. Hope it’s useful.

14 x 22 inches Watercolour and Pencil on Paper. I painted this watercolour on Friday in order to make up the numbers for my exhibition at Drapers' Bar in Coventry this December and the following January. I wanted a really clean, crisp painting and I think I got one.
