Here is the other painting I've done for my 'client'... her mother bought some of mine a few years ago - one that she loves of the ice-cream man, and one of a woman walking through this avenue - so I combined the two and hope that she will like this one. I didn't put in all the shadows that would fall on the figure - they are very dark at this time of year, and the picture is busy as it is, so he looks to me as though he's been juxtaposed, but he does provide a solid focal point I think.
I'm changing track completely today - I started illustrating a children's book for a friend about a year ago, and she is soon to go and visit her young grandchildren in Australia, so I want to finish it for her to take with her. So sploshy watercolours with pen & ink for the next while - I'm afraid I really am (the female arty equivalent of) Jack-of-all-trades, master of none!
