|"Just walking in the Rain" oil on 8x10 board|
An experiment in painting and a bit of nostalgia:
So this little painting is a sort of memory of about 4 years ago when I returned to UK for a few weeks due to an illness in the family. My sister then lived in Wembley, a short hop on the tube and we were in the centre of London, and she has has a love affair with this City and loves to visit as often as possible.
Both of us have a love for Art and this was an opportunity to visit all the Galleries together. I think we were more often than not a bit like a couple of kids enjoying every moment we could, no matter where we were.
We made a decision to visit the British Museum which covers just about anything to do with
History so much to look at, mind boggling!
On our way home it was raining. I can't remember taking the photo but somehow John found it on our photo steam, I have always wanted to paint a picture of the rain including an umbrella!
The result isn't axactly riveting but it's just the job for me!
I think it's really lovely. All your paintings are good and getting better with each one you do. I like painting pics of places I have been to because of the memories.ReplyDelete
