Brock Street

Late afternoon, looking down Brock Street while sat under one of the huge plane trees in the centre of the King’s Circus, Bath. There’s a red sight-seeing bus heading towards towards the Royal  Crescent, and a delivery van parked up on the pavement. Britain’s enjoying a heatwave at the moment so the grass is parched yellow and people are muttering about the weather.

I’m still enjoying experimenting with coloured papers and gouache. Here the brown paper gives a consistent background for the uniform Bath stone buildings, with dilute Lexington grey ink adding the shadows. The unfinished figure reclining bottom right got up and left…
