TEWKSBURY high street - Gloucester England by 

Watercolor. This is my interpretation of an old early turn of the century photo of Tewksbury that I found of this beautiful city in the heart of England. The high street in late afternoon as the sun settlesn behind the town creating a sepia haze. It is summer in a time when life was slower, world war one is over and the monument on the corner attests to this..

This 12X16 watercolor on 140 lb Arches paper, using Grumbacher premium W/C paints and russian Sable brushes. I employed a wet on wet technique with several glazes and drybrush to complete.

I am at heart a sailor, a sailor who loves to paint the sea, its moods and shifting colors. Also, there is a keen interest in the history of ships and the sailors that have travelled far distances or perished in a dramatic moment of action, in a sea in turmoil. This influence is evident in dramatic watercolors such as “The Gypsy
Moth IV” fully caught in the teeth of a gale off Cape Horn or “Red Flag Day” at the San Clemente Pier.
