Market Day

Sunday 13th January 2019

Based on my Saturday morning routine of walking to the outdoor market in Birmingham to pick up vegetables for the week. Based on, because the sky wasn’t blue, there isn’t a window there on the right, the Wah Kee Bakery has gone or at least changed name and it’s usually quite busy!

It took me a couple of hours to get the sketch how I wanted it to be in pencil, and then about three more hours to paint it using Windsor and Newton beginner watercolours and Derwent skintones pencils. The background was quite tricky as I’ve not tried backgrounds before, and I’m not quite happy with the colour or finish of the path, but it’s not bad for a first attempt at a full painting.
