Feeling less stressed this week. After the nightmare of trying to paint on watercolour ground, I’m now back to paper, stuck onto a plywood board. So far so good, no nasty surprises so far. Just nice clean lines on paper. It may look finished but I’ve a little more painting to do to make the wheel stand out. I’m really excited about this one as already it’s looking good. It can also be very scary at this point. When it looks good, I don’t want to overdo it now, do I? I’m playing with the idea of racing taxis for the painting’s title. Any suggestions? See you on Saturday for the finished results!
I’ve been concentrating on smaller pieces recently. This is is the finished version of a work in progress I posted on my Facebook page last week. I love the underground symbol, so simple yet immediately identifiable and distinctive. The perfect foreground for my first painting of the Walkie Talkie, also known as 20 Fenchurch Street. It hit the headlines last year when the skyscraper was melting things in it’s path, including shop fronts and cars. The image reminds me of a Clash song… London Calling… I wonder why? Save
