This week we spent an afternoon around the Leighton Centre. It’s a fairly large format (18″ X 24″) for me. I’ve been doing a lot of painting related to my teaching lately and it’s all been in small format paintings mostly 9″ X 12″. So it was a bit of a challenge yet I was working to a deadline so I just had to get on with it. There are some neat watercolour effects in it such as the bushes especially with the calligraphic strokes. Also the negative painting under the deck created some nice grasses. I also like the deck and the grass in front. On the side of what I would like to change I think I would lighten the shadow over the front.
