This painting was done at art group this week and is a view in Manchester City Centre from St Anne’s Square towards Harvel Nicholls. I took the original image on my phone, uploaded it to Flickr to enable me to get it from the computer easily for printing.
My aim in this painting was to try and produce a very loose watercolour that was applied on top of a pen sketch. I made sure the perspective was correct before drawing then produced a 15 minute sketch. The colour was added in about 45 minutes to give a very quick picture that hopefully the viewer can add the details for themselves.
The group finishes for the summer in a couple of weeks which is a little devastating as I do find it hard doing things at home. I am determined to ensure that I do something at least weekly. If I don’t the blog will be a bit pointless.
As ever…thanks for looking.
