    The green version is quite fun to look at. I like the abstract energy in the red version, too.

    I like the fading away quality in these. (K)

    • I like that description. When sketching, there was so much going on with building corners, windows, bridge, water, paths, fences etc, but it looked quite unreal, like a backdrop curtain. The sky was just another plain behind the buildings. I tried to reflect that in the painting. I like the top one best, when it was just a splurge of colours and less detail. The buildings did seem to be jostling for position along the water. Thanks for visiting, you are always welcome!

    great color and composition in this. Is this gouache?

  4. These are so cool. I like the middle one. The way you handled the values in that one give it more depth and makes me think of buildings in front of buildings moving away from the canal. This is the one I liked so much from your previous sketches! Fun and really good!

    I thought I followed various blogs regularly but I am struck by these which I have missed. Coming backwards from your orange buildings to these which are in cool colours feels like walking round a gallery.

    • Thank you KA. It’s great to get these comments. I do feel as if i’m getting nowhere most of the time or, even worse, there’s nowhere for me to go so, having someone spend time looking and commenting is amazing for me.
