St James's Park Sunshine
Lovely memories of a sunny day in St James's Park, London earlier this summer. I thought that this sweet cottage and garden near to the river was just a great little spot and I used my photos above combined together to create the little scene below. Not too sure about the final result here though - the colours are quite a lot more muted than I would like - as you can see the photos are much more vibrant, particularly the greens. I'm not too sure about the composition either. Still the painting does give a feeling, to me anyway, of the lovely relaxed atmosphere from a stroll in the sunshine so not a complete failure I guess!
