St James's Parade, Bath

St james parade bath

Bath, UK, 15" x 11"

A fairly loose rendition of a typical Bath street, and trying to capture the warm ochre of the stonework.  I'm also mixing different silhouetted shapes with the figures coming out of shadows, as I quite often do now, shadows on the far buildings, and some street furniture catching the light and contrasting with the background.  I have achieved the soft edge of where the rooftops meet the sky by doing a little wet in wet, with the building was being slightly thicker than the sky wash.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 Gms

Bath is, without doubt, my favourite UK city. Your paintings really capture the slightly faded Georgian splendour that typifies the architecture there.

Thank you Marc. I agree, a lovely city and so many subjects for urban painting
