I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    It’s wonderful!!!..I really do love how you do the brickwork and stone work ..
    the green shrubbery against the browns looks great!

  • Thanks Catherine … I thought I’d take a break from bendy buildings, cats and flowers :)

    A fine pen and wash, Dave.

    And just a hint of the Victorian railway bridge adjoining. Excellent art, and a long-time, familiar subject for me! The stone details are first-rate, and a good sky.

    The skirt of shrubbery greens, beats the parked cars and drunks. of reality!

  • In the reference photo I used there was some shrubbery. There wasn’t a bridge in the background either … only houses … maybe you are thinking of it from another angle.

    Very cool Dave; from the small preview it sort of looked like a photo or 3D rendering; nice colors and shading.

    Ah, just look how those shadows give form and contrast. You’ve used the various mediums very effectively Dave.

  • Thanks Brian. I always value your comments. I pay more attention to shadows these days – thanks to your tuition. I keep that tutorial you made for me on shadows.

    Ah, yes, I see the rooftiles now. Your perspective is from east side, near dog leap stairs.
