River Avon. Salisbury Town Centre (A3 acrylic) (unframed)
on a sunny day in Salisbury, wandering around the town purchasing art materials, and looking at the market, it seemed a good idea to have some lunch. This cafe, The Salisbury Orangery, used to be, for many years, an art shop, called I think, ‘The Complete Artist’, or similar
The building has had a very fine restoration done to it, and is now a cafe that serves excellent coffees and food.
On a hot day, I sat outside on a Bench overlooking the river, and this was the view.
iPhone to hand I took some snaps, and this is the resulting painting.
I showed great patience painting. all the detail and there was much use of the detail brush. I’m quite pleased with the foliage and the water. but the buildings feel stark and lacking vigour. But overall a pleasing composititon.
