melbourne lunchtime (de Graves street)

ever since i started painting i have had a desire to paint some of the quaint and cool "alleyways" and lanes in melbourne, australia. mission number one was to do "de Graves street". this one once the home of the melbourne "soup nazi". anyway. i was walking by de Graves street the other day and it was a warm spring day and the light was gorgeous. so i snapped a few reference photos on my phone. i took these references and this is what appeared. this is a full sheet arches cp. all watercolor paints only. lots of yellow ochre. permanent crimson and cerulean.

autumn study - iv

i like the cool/warm interplay of this. the warmth of Autumn and the cool of Autumn co-exist only a few feet away from each other. such is the nature of that season...
