City Hall Cardiff


I did the above painting today. It is of City Hall Cardiff a lovely Baroque building. I have painted it in an impressionsitic style. It is quite nice to use this style. It's easy going, there's no need to draw anything out, just get going with turps and some browns blocking in the values. Its just a matter of building up the painting then using medium and more paint finishing with the lightest colours. Of course it could go wrong if you got things in the wrong place or got bogged down in detail.

I like Cardiff. It's one of my favourite cities. It's not too far. You can walk around it. There is plenty to see and has the best stadium in the world!
