Bath ExperienceVI (Nelson's Place, Oil on Canvas, 60cm x 30cm, 2009)



This is another painting I have done of Bath. One of the things that pulled me into this scene was the raking light that cut across London Road, Bath, just before Nelson's Place. To me, this is drama! I love the effect of light, especially when its course is forced to squeeze through little openings. This is exactly what happened here and the wall on the right then reveals a sort of abstract painting due to the same effect.

I enjoy my visits to your blog each time I am here! I like the light in the painting "Bath Experience VI". I also appreciated your previous post which showcased various artists and their techniques. It brought back fond memories of my days as an Art Major at Edinboro University here in Pennsylvania. Group drawing and painting classes when models were our subjects were favorites of mine. You have inspired me to pick up my pencil to draw! My husband has been recovering from a hip replacement surgery and I've been busy caring for him...time to relax and get creative again! God bless you!! Keep Creating - your artistic ability is an amazing gift from the Lord!
