Balcony view, across the canal by Peter Lusby Taylor

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

A watercolour of the wintry trees in front of my mother’s flat ’s balcony with a cottage beyond the sun struck grassy bit. The trees are a mass of branches going in all directions and not the sort of thing I would normally love to paint but its been cold and grey and not very inspiring to be outside.

    Lovely Peter! Some of the photographers here don’t mind if you paint their pictures. Just ask! Not the same as being outside, but there is a whole world to discover here on rb!
    I go on a tropical vacation all the time! ;o))))
    take care, and stay warm. Linda

  • Lucky you, never been to the tropics myself, thanks for the lovely comment. I don’t quite understand your first line ?

    Peter, I meant if you wanted to paint a picture of someones’ photograph of a place or subject, they probably wouldn’t mind.
    I guess a bit got lost in the translation. I look at the pictures here on Redbubble of the tropics and use my imagination to pretend I am some where in the sun.
    I have been to the tropics, but just looking at the pictures here sometimes help to chase away the winter blahs.
    Hope this helps! Linda

  • Okay I was a bit puzzled I was thinking portraits. Its a kind thought but i don’t work from photographs.!! God Bless

    Beautifully depicted Peter, your mother is lucky to have such a great view. …

  • Thanks so much Tom, there’s a river too at the bottom of her garden (not quite the Forth!) which I didn’t show and its a fabulous spot. She has been immensely fortunate to live here for the last few years.

    Such a nice point of view here. I like the depiction of trees as well. Nice work.
