Hi Stephen i like this its worked well lovely and summerlike , the foreground shadow gives depth and enhances the feeling of sunshine

You and Dennis have some good " tricks" Stephen, that shadow draws out the contrast, as it did in your recent pastel.

Many thanks Dennis and Marjorie for your encouragement, many artists use that ploy of a dark shadow across the foreground, you would think it would form a barrier but it does the eye into the scene.

Agree great painting lovely washes Stephen

Many thanks once again Dennis and Michael.

I feel for you, Stephen! This was always my least favorite month when I lived in London! This is certainly a great way to beat the winter blues. Super piece!

Hang on Studio Wall

Cold and miserable (yet again) today. Tried to imagine a summer walk through the park. In an A4 sketchbook, Tried a James Fletcher Watson approach.

I am a self taught amateur painter, I mostly paint landscapes in watercolour but I 'dabble' in other mediums from time to time. I really enjoy my art, especially painting outdoors when the weather allows.
