Preparing for a workshop


Off to Cutthorpe Art Group near Chesterfield tomorrow. We're going to have a look at this version of the Devon door, the photo of which has such a lovely shadow over it. It's quite a straightforward subject and you can make it as loose or as detailed as you like. But the main area of interest is how the light is falling from the top left and delineating the stonework in the wall. I always like cast shadows and there is a lovely effect over the door and house wall and also bottom right where the nasturtiums are casting shadow over the wall.

I've been putting some more images on Flickr annmortimerart so why don't you go over and have a look?
