Weeks 5 & 6 – Project – Busy Street Scene

My art teacher brought in some black and white photographs for us to choose from.

Bar CentraleThere were loads but, I really liked this scene so decided to give it a try.  The only criteria we had to follow was that it must be Mixed Media.

I opted for Watercolours and pen.  I also felt I wanted to try a different approach to how I normally work.  So, I decided to try a loose, sketchy feel to it.  I wanted to convey the feeling of actually being there and the spontaneity of the painting rather than feeling as though it had been painted from a photograph.  I think it was fairly successful but, I’ll let you decide what you think.  I’ve posted the finished painting under the Mixed Media Paintings Tab.
