Byegone Days

Todays townscape watercolour painting is based on a London street scene, but could be any cityscape of the time. If you click the picture, a larger image appears.

Another great one, Trevor!! Those light atmospheric washes remind me of Turner but you draw the figure better than he did.

Hi Trevor,

I think you capture the "hustle and bustle" beautifully.

Everyone also looks caught up in their own little world just as it today.

Oh Trevor, this is a joy to view! The looseness really adds to the feeling of nostalgia. I love the shadows and the subject immensely - a wonderful reminder of bygone days!
