Fore Street Shops, Sidmouth, Devon


Watercolour of Sidmouth, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms.

The fairly narrow Fore Street in this South devon town and quite a complex subject with all the shop windows, shop signs, reflections all over the place, the light at a low angle (my source photo was taken early spring) and figures - some showing, others merging into the shadows.  I made the foreground shadows fairly warm with alizarin crimson dominating the wash.
