Planning my painting of the Florists


these rough sketches are a good way of finding out if I am planning the right colours! My first choice of a glowing yellow florist just did not suit the painting...so I ripped up some rough paper, painted it with blues and stuck it on...much better and will of course show off the flowers so much better. I also will change the red on the left to something maybe more bluey.

from photo to sketch to pencil...to pen!

Here's how I am working up my latest painting. I seem to be working on lots of different ones at the moment. It will be good to get finishing some of them! It is a view of English's in Brighton.

Think I might be there with my six school children. You can see that I have had trouble with the little girl with the blank stare!
