This is a new version of a watercolour I did years back. Always looking for new material and though this isn't as I have just said, it's a new version in a new medium and using my card technique. Why not use old subjects and this one is mine. I got some nice awards with the watercolour. It's probably in my history in WC otherwise on my website.
This is 37 x 27cms on a very good quality watercolour paper I was gifted when a lady artist has packed in because of ill health.

Thanks Gayle, Doug and Michelle. The original had slightly different tones and a bit grey sky.

No night-time but a good painting - and nothing wrong with re-painting subjects!:)

Well done Derek.
If it was a summer night in Scotland it could easily be called night shopping.

Thanks Maureen and Margaret. Don't think too literally about the atmosphere.

Another gem, Derek! Love the sense of movement from the people. The dark buildings against the sky create a nice dramatic tension.
