A postcard from London - the meeting place

The Mall Galleries, London, Katherine Tyrrell, coloured pencil

I've been lucky enough to scan through Katherine's sketchbooks on many occasions when we've met up - but never owned any of her work  - until now :>)

This gorgeous large card was waiting for me when I got back from Cornwall.   It's of the entrance to the Mall Galleries, huge trees along the pavement, luminous spring leaves with a wonderful subtle dappled light filtering through and making the grey pavements alive with colour.

It's where we often meet up on the rare occasions when I manage to get down to London so a familiar and very apt subject.

I love the attitude of the man in the centre of the group of   :>).

The warm colour of the poster is just perfect as a small accent amongst all that spring green.

The bulk, weight and age of that front tree is well done.

Altogether - I'm delighted!   I'm building such a lovely collection from you all :>)

Thank you everyone

Very nice sketch, the big trunk has an incredible cool bark structure and the light is beautiful, very impressionistic.

It is very impressionistic - think you're right there Martin. Its amazing how Katherine can get this effect with pencils. Such an interesting composition too.

Katherine, this is wonderful, it is impressionistic and sets the mood of the day. Wonderful way to say "street scene" and I like the subtle shadows on the sidewalks. Beautiful!

Oh I do love this one. It's very French! That's what the promise of a holiday in Provence does to one. The shadows are beautiful, Katherine and the old foreground tree is awesome.

Alison Staite said...

Ahhh... lovely colours! I agree the foreground tree is especially special!

Wonderful, Katherine. I feel so special to be a part of all of this. Every piece of art is a delight. I can't wait to add a Katherine to my collection.
