A quiet street

This painting has been sold

Acrylic on hardboard approx 9" x 9"

This is a re-work of a painting I did in November 2007, so it's got a more autumn feel than a summer one. I loved the way the sun had got between the buildings and lit up that left hand wall with a bright L shape.

I won't be posting for a couple of weeks as I am going away. See you in August some time. In the meantime check out "Tuesday" the posting of 18th December 08 - that is also a recent rework. I like it much better now.

Nice! I think you did a great job using greys in the foreground to play up the warm burst of color from the sunlight.

Thanks Barbara, Olha and Leslie. Yes, I can confidently state there is a lot more sun here in Belgium. We had a great day in Gent yesterday. That's a beautiful old city.
