This week in art class : wet pavements. Also, dog leggies.


JRR Tolkien & Bilbo Baggins strolling along Merton Street, Oxford after the rain, smoking their pipes.

The exercise was supposed to be a seasonal one about how to paint wet pavement reflecting evening lights, since the rain is here for the autumn.  I'm not sure I entirely got the wet reflected light as shiny as it could be. but I'm quite pleased with the cobbles and the figures. Also pleased that I managed to restrain myself from drawing 999 details into the buildings and just going for light and shadow.

Also, here is Rosie Roo putting on a fine display of Celtic Knotwork Legs.
