Skylines

Hi Everybody

Life here in the UK is changing daily, and not for the better it seems, as we contend with the Virus.

Not going out is the new phase we are in and as it will last a while we will all be rather frustrated.

Maybe some more time for painting, reading, gardening and hopefully still some golf will now now be our new norm! Travel will have to wait for now.

So today I painted a watercolour of the skyline of Toronto.

After a recent commission from there I thought I should look up Toronto as I had only passed through it years ago when visiting Niagara Falls.

I immediately saw that like a number of other cities it has an impressive skyline and so here is the watercolour.

                 Toronto. Watercolour 18 inches by 8 on Arches NOT watercolour paper.

I have painted a few skylines before and so they are reproduced here. They are enjoyable to do and I like the almost monochrome approach I have used here.

As they are fun to do I think I might do some more, well there is going to be plenty of time over the next few months!


I hope you like these so far,more to follow.

Red roof on Teal lake. Watercolour 10 inches by 10.

San Francisco. Watercolour 16 by 8 inches

Rye from the Marshes. Watercolour 14 by 8

San Francisco, watercolour 11 by 7 inches

Montreal. Watercolour 14 by 9 inches

Stay well and Travel will return for us later on.
