This is one of the largest water colours I have painted. It is a commission for a local doctor. I had to order two full sheets of paper [I was very nervous about it, and needed a spare sheet in case...!!] I decided to use Arches Rough, 600lb, expensive, but worth it for it not to cockle when working wet in wet. I hate working from someone else's photograph, it had railings right through all the people's heads, which I decided to omit. I painted it as loosely as I could, but still feelunsure about it, as I feel it's much tighter than my usual work. Comments very much appreciated, thanks for looking!
