Night Shopping (acrylics)

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.

Nicely done. Lots of interest and texture. When I quit shopping I’ll send you my cards 😂

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.

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