Piccadilly Nocturne

Gouache painting of the view towards Piccadilly at night by Helen Davison

“Piccadilly Nocturne”, 9″ x 12″, gouache

I’ve been doing lots of sketching and painting since the New Year, so have quite a lot to organise and get online. In the meantime, here’s another gouache practise sketch that I painted a few weeks ago from a sketch and photo of the view up towards Piccadilly, complete with Christmas lights. Since working on this I’m starting to get a better feel for the kind of paper I prefer now, and also a method of putting down paint that is feeling more comfortable. I may revisit this at some point and see what improvements I have made.
