Another I forgot to upload; this is painted from a photo I took at
Whitechapel Market on an unusually hot April day. The market was
bustling, full of colourful stalls; most seemed to be selling fruit and
veg, or scarves. I've said before I love painting markets, and this was
no exception. I was happy to catch this pair mid-transaction, a bit of
human interaction makes for an interesting challenge. Though I must have
re-painted that white shirt a dozen times!
It was a very challenging scene to paint generally, because of the sheer amount of stuff
everywhere; stacks of boxes, the striped canopy folding and catching
the light, the hanging blue bags... And the fact you can see through the
back of the stall to the other side of the street! I hope I managed to
create a cohesive painting out of it all.
