Colchester High Street – Morning Sun

Skills: Oil Paintings, Works for sale

I had a job in the Car Park at the university of Essex. Some days I’d get the bus really early and have to change buses in the high street, and I was struck by how beautiful the high street is at that time of the morning, the sun shines down The top end and illuminates the buildings, and if there’s a slight morning mist they disappear into orange loveliness, with the town hall standing like a proud exclamation mark. As soon as I saw it like this I knew I wanted to paint it.
