After the Rain (towards Trafalgar Square) 5" x 7", Mixed Media on Watercolour paper, 2009 SOLD

Another piece from my exhibition. This started off as a piece in gouache, then To get some spontaneous effects I had to introduce other media like crayons, ink and coloured pencils.



The mood here is that bright sunshine that radiates immediately after a Pure English Afternoon Down Pour! You can't predict the weather in London and this is what it is all about!

Once again I could be producing loads of these from another busy urban city- NEW YORK! So if you want to see that happen. Please VOTE HERE I'm still currently 4th and anything can happen!

Wow - that is very beautiful! Most striking is the manner in which you depicted the reflections; aside from that of the person on the far left(which is just a little longer than it needs to be) they are all perfectly proportional and very lovely. I also notice - and this is stemming from your "rush hour" picture as well - that you have a very good sense of depth and space to compliment your skilled depiction of faces in portraits. Honestly, there's not much to really critique here - and you know, for better or worse, I don't hold back :p. Very good, my friend.
