Off to Work, George Street, Sydney: Watercolor by Joe Cartwright. Half Sheet Arches Rough, 300 gsm.
Painting Sydney streets is much different to painting those in Melbourne. Melbourne’s streets can be very wide with lots of light and tram lines, Sydney streets are somewhat narrow and dark due to the limited light that hits them. This scene is set around 8 am near Martin Place which allows more light to hit George Street ( for those that know the area). I was attracted to the strong shadow shapes and the mass of people heading off to work.
