Style in the Mall
Watercolour 57cm x 38cm
 Saunders Waterford Bright White Cold Press
I often tackle something way out of my comfort zone to find out how my observation skills have improved. This watercolour is just that. Adding people to a work would have once scared me to death but I am feeling achievement here as I used this shopping mall to try out lots of people. I was attracted to this light filled image I found a long time ago on PMP but filed it away as way to hard for me at that time. Lots of improvement required for architecture - thats a whole new challenge to work on, but there is so much here that I am pleased with.


  1. You did a great job on the perspective of the people moving into the distance. Adding people to paintings is definitely a challenge, especially so many of them! Nice!!

  2. Arches AND figures Lorraine! It's great to feel more accomplished and able to try once intimidating subjects. Well done!

  3. Looking very nice. People looking good, and I also like the light coming down from the top. I must practise painting people too.

  4. How lovely. You have a great talent. Thank you so much for sharing. :)

  5. You should definitely feel pleased, it's a great painting with so much to look at , looks like a busy place and the people are perfect . You are so brave a variating your subjects.

  6. Love the work you've done here. All the neutrals are complemented by the stronger color highlights. The people look great.
