Your first picture looks like a couple of motorcycles going through a city on a rainy night. Any chance that I am right?

fun! I meant them to be cars on a rainy night in a city, but motorcycles work :)

I just saw this thread. Wonderful paintings, Mary. I love how you capture city streets and ordinary people going about their business and daily lives.

Ok, so, I am VERY inspired!! Here I have started something - I am not sure what - but I saw a colorful water-city-scape... and I sketched it onto a thin wooden panel that was in a very cool frame and made into a chalkboard (I fixed that and applied about 4 coats of gesso). Acrylics on a panel, 10"x20" (odd size, but works for a scene like this and I already have a frame! Yay!) I feel like I am doing paint by numbers... lol lol:clear:

Hey, Mary, I'm late to the party with my response, but WOW! These are just wonderful. You have a real gift in expressing gesture. I'm very impressed! Kudos to you! :clap:

And I hope you'll come back to post here. It's a very new forum, so there aren't many regulars yet. Your work could be a big draw!

I really like all of these, but the more simpler ones seem to attract me more than the complex compositions. Nice work!

Marvellously competent work there, Mary.

I especially like #4, the woman with a basket on her back.

I love your street scene watercolours Mary! My favourite is the two boys on the bycicle in a previous post.

I love your paintings! You are really talented. I especially like the first painting and the old lady with the basket, and the man on the bicycle with his daughter. They look really authentic.

Love all of these, especially the cityscapes. :) You are so good with the human form and the urban scenes are excellent as well.

All are very good but for me the first one stands out the most. Looks like you are looking through your windshield at night and it's raining your wipers are off or not working very cool in love this one

this looks cool. look like i seen some of the images in magazines before. i not putting it down as i know people do use photos from them at times. but a man that was running a art show and the judge told him he saw the photo the artist used as a refer in a magazine. The painting was good but the judge down rated the painting because of the refer photo was not the artist but someone else.
Like I say I not putting down the work here and it maybe all your work. so if so forgive me for saying this warning
it the one with the woman carrying the basket and the other one a woman carrying a child and something with a pole over her shoulder I think i saw the refer photos in a magazine.

Wonderful work! My favorites are the first, for the intensity of color and contrast, and the second, for that wonderful sky.
