Watercolour on Arches Cold pressed Paper.
This took way too long…I started it before I got the flu and finished it afterwards…seemed to drag on forever, so I’ve got a bit of a love/hate thing with this one.

    Very impressive piece of work, Fiona. You have captured the mood and the scene so effectively. Beautiful watercolour, and well worth the effort and time.

  • Thanks for your kind comments…most of the time was spent doing the windows!

    I can see this took long time. So much beautiful detail and depth in this work. I love the phone booth. Great work.

  • Thanks so much Monica….I definately enjoyed doing the phone box/booth (depending on where we live ;-))

    Congratulations on your feature. I will help you to depart from the hate adventure and express my love for this. You have captured such amazing light in all of the concrete. I love the contrast of the blues and reds, and the quality of work you have cleanly expressed in the perspective. I am enjoying the buildings with planes that contrast with that perspective. Fantastic work.

  • Thanks so much for your insightful words Pixie…really appeciate you taking time to comment :)

    Well done Fiona. I love the buildings and the wetness of the street.

  • Thanks so much Ann…the wet street was the easy part…..the buildings a nightmare with all the perspective!
