Painting in the city

If you've been following my misadventures, you'll know I'm on  a quest to improve my art skills. I have decided that the best way to do this is to focus in on one subject or theme. I don't  have many options for portraiture and life drawing, I can't bubble up the enthusiasm for a still life every day and landscapes are not me right now. So I've decided to focus in on buildings and architecture, cityscapes if you will.

My aim is to build skill in using water colours as well as oil paint. I've already got a number of works painted. But they have been completed from photographs I have taken.  My aim is to do more observational paintings. 

Here's the gallery I've completed so far. ('Of the city' and 'From the city' are older works)
