Often when out and about something catches the eye, whether a pattern, group of objects or angles etc.
These two charcoal drawings were made this summer on sunny days with strong light and shade.
Just for a change I decided to paint the scenes in the studio, using just the sketches and memory.
I used acrylics, applying lose washes and glazes building up from light to dark, similar approach to watercolour.
The result is a feeling of spontaneity and vibrance, helped by the larger sizes of canvas than that which
I normally paint.
