WDE 2 March Arcade, possibly WIP

This is my picture after a little over 2 hours:



It's pastel on Pastelmat, ca. 18 x 23 cm. I might still continue to work on it a bit.

C & c welcome.

Excellent sketch of the arcade. You have captured the main architectural structure, the distance and light in broad strokes and put in just sufficient detail to suggest the complexity of the scene. The figures are very convincing and lend a sense of bustle. Really nice.

Wow, nicely done. I wasn't even sure where to begin on that one, but you got it done quite well.

A great scene in the arcade, Clea. Will watch this thread to see if you do more to it. Looks fine at this stage to me.

Re: WDE 2 March Arcade, possibly WIP

Oh my, what a beautifully mysterious piece... so many stories could be playing out here... an evocative work of art...

I hope if you continue, things won't change too much - it's quite special at the moment.

Re: WDE 2 March Arcade, possibly WIP

Absolutely exquisite! Less is definitely more ~ finding the image in simplicity. It seems it could be a finished piece as-is. You knowledge of tonal/colour combinations as fresh strokes is amazing.
