Painting Buildings

I painted this abandoned villa from a photo I took two years ago, when I was visiting my parents in Calabria during Easter. I've recently bought 'The Watercolourist's Guide to Painting Buildings' by R. Taylor, so I thought I would give it a go in applying some of the techniques explained in the book. The results are not quite the same (especially the perspective of the windows on the ground floor, as my little brother pointed out), but I enjoyed the painting overall.

On the train

Friday afternoon on the train to Surbiton, finally going back home from work.

High Holborn under the rain

It rained all day yesterday....but it wasn't too cold. I was able to sit outside Pret a Manger and sketch the surroundings while drinking a hot miso soup.

Bloomsbury Square Gardens

I draw this yesterday during my lunch break. There were still snow on the grass and patches of ice on the footpath. It was very cold, but the sky was clear. I added the colour later at home.

....and more snow

I did this sketch while sitting at my desk at work. This is the view of St Peter's Church in Norbiton covered in snow as I see it from my office. What a shame having to be at work today!

First post.......and first snow!

Just a quick sketch to celebrate my first post on the blog and the first snow of the season.
It had just started to snow when I did this sketch and I had to open the window to see what was going on, but couldn't keep it open for long......it was too cold.
