But it’s a commission from a company who wanted a couple of paintings of their holding centres for a new showroom/lobby. So how to make a painting from an unpromising photograph? I enjoyed depicting the smartness of the building front to the right, but keeping a ‘watercolour’ look. The left hand side was relieved by the softness of the hillside behind and greatly helped by the distant church tower, and the red post box on the gates. I created ‘movement’ in the sky to relieve the ‘static’ lines of the warehouse. I might yet put a couple of figures by the vans as it just seems to want something else there. Where does one stop?
I hope they like it!
