Work In Progress Step 2
I am taking my time with this pastel doing it in stages and spending time at each stage just having it beside me in the same room, so that I can allow it to tell me what needs doing.
It is amazing how a painting speaks to you, is it not?
So here we are after two sessions of working on it. Hopefully today I will complete it.
Again I remind you this is not an attempt to portray realism but rather to capture the essence of the place.
This alley leads to the small harbour of South Queensferry. The harbour is the placing of setting out and coming home. For so many brides it is also a place of setting out. Many brides and grooms walk down this alley to have wedding pictures taken with the famous bridge in the background. Brides and grooms setting off on the journey of married life, it seems appropriate.
I have pictures of my own daughter on her wedding day taken at this very harbour.
I have another blog at. Hands
