I haven't made many posts of late as I've been quite busy, new work has been sporadic at best. In particular I haven't had my watercolour paints out for what seems ages as my last few offerings were all pastel apart from a couple of pencil commissions. So, having caught up with myself at last it was with a slightly nervous attitude I got out my paints and a frighteningly bright, clean sheet of Arches to begin a new painting. Below is my progress after the first session. I used a photograph from the Paint My Photo website as reference.
Once completed I uploaded this image to my Facebook page for a bit of feedback and was rather pleased to receive a message from one of my 'friends' asking me to reserve this painting for them. He also enquired about one which has sold, so I may be painting a new version of 'The Streets Of London' for him sometime soon. That's cheered me up a bit after my experience with those damned Chinese buggers from my previous post.
