Norman Road, Belvedere II, 10" x 8", Oil on Canvas board, 2009

This was painted yesterday in Alla prima style. The weather is just getting better and better and I couldn't resist going out again to get this lively late evening spring feel to Norman Road, around where I live. I have painted this scene Before but that was when it had just snowed heavily in London.





This time it is the same road but a complete contrast, it is spring and the late afternoons are really getting better and better! I did this in oil on a canvas stuck to masonite board.

There are some pics of the scene.

Always great to see the master at work! It really give us a piece of humanity to connect with the art.

What a difference the two paintings (winter and spring) are! I love how you've been able to document this. Love your stuff.
