I have some what cheated with this composition by putting two photos I took of one model together. The young woman kindly posed for our art society some time ago. That is the beauty of photography has a reference. Perhaps the purists would frown, but I will resort to any inspirational reference for my fix.

Its time I tried another short video clip. You may have already gathered from some of my blog paintings that I enjoy painting busy scenes with figures. This painting is one of my favourite subjects..what else but Venice. I hope you find it interesting.

It is a beautiful old city and thankfully it is being carefully restored after the Bosnia War.
Why do we never learn from the mistakes of the past.

Perhaps she is refusing his advances and playing hard to get!
I wonder what the two pals are thinking!

I must look on this medium with different expectation.

I have tried to create a feeling of immediacy with this painting even though it has been created from a reference photo rather than plein air. I hope you like this one.

I am afraid my skills of writing interesting articles is very limited, and therefore I must apologise for being rather boring and just showing my paintings. Todays watercolour is of a typical nostalgic townscape. The scene is based on the old open top trams of Bradford , but I suppose it could be anywere in Britain of the time.
Thank you again.

I am painting rather a lot of oils lately and I am doing my old thing of worrying that if I leave my watercolours more than a few days I will "loose it". Its funny really but I think that has prevented me venturing into the oil world in the past.
well, I am enjoying oils no end and thats what I need at present.
I hope you find it interesting.
