Oil on Board, 12 x 17 inches
I thought I would paint something out of my comfort zone for my upcoming Cotswold exhibition, so I thought this view of Burford would fit the bill. My intention was to paint it loosely, but I failed miserably! There isn't much detail really from the middle distance backwards, just a lot of dabs of colour and tone, although I did try to make as much sense of the architecture in the sunlit cottages at the bottom of the street on the right. I spent a lot more time on the painting than I wanted to, because cars, humans and buildings have a lot of parts in them! You may have heard me rave about Peter Brown's work on here in a previous post, but I'm even more in awe of him now, his default subject being street scenes, hence his pseudonym 'Pete the Street'
