Leicester's Gatehouse.


Another good one from you Rupert

I think you have dealt with the tangle of foliage very well - it’s a great watercolour.

Hang on Studio Wall

14 x 22 inches watercolour on Langton rough paper. I painted this in the shade of the tower ( on the left ) before the sun came round and it became too hot. I always have trouble with large areas of weeds and tangled plants as I look for ways to convincingly generalise them, keeping them subordinate to the main points of interest: In this case, the gatehouse.
