The first painting accident was the occasion that brought me into Kensington Olympia Station in good light and at the position I was, it resulted in this photograph. (I’ve pixilated the face on purpose)
The second was during painting when I experimented with the face.
I’ve managed to balance the level of definition and abstraction to my satisfaction. The trick is going to be how to repeat this effect in future paintings.
This part of the roof has also developed some lovely textures.

I did a lot more painting before I cleared off the masking.
Here’s the finished painting.
Think this will be one of my submissions to the SWA exhibition in July. What do you reckon?
Next week I’ll be doing the Bucks Art Society exhibition in Beaconsfield.
