Summer on Norwich Market Acrylic on Acrylic Board) (A3 unframed)
I didn’t think I would be painting any more scenes of Norwich Market, when I saw this one. I thought it was colourful and lively, and I liked the figures that made it interesting, so I have included it.
I have to say I have struggled with this and maybe it shows. I found painting all the background stalls with hanging clothes and piles of bedding, or whatever it is, rather tiresome, and it was more like colouring in than painting. The original that I was working from, was of poor quality which made it more difficult, and I felt that the whole thing was becoming messy.
I worked hard on the figures and the foreground, and I feel they were stronger, though far from perfect, and as such they do a job at holding the composition together.
AsI feel more indifferent about this one, it’s reflected in the price.
