Gainsborough’s statue. Sudbury Market Square


Watercolour 7"x10"


So there I was minding my own business, sat on the doorstop of the supermarket, painting the view of the market with Gainsborough’s statue in the background presiding over the events of the day, and then this whacking great lorry parks right in front of me as the traders begin to pack their goods away. What do you do?

It’s at times like this you are very grateful  you took a reference photo of the scene before it happened. So always take a photograph while going is good. Maybe you won’t need it, but on the other hand…..

  1. sorry to lower the tone but it was at here at St Peters in Sudbury that Pongo and Perditia drank from a trough escaping Cruella de Ville in 101 Dalmations….not a lot of people know that..

  2. You have done an excellent painting. I can feel the bright sunshine and the deep shadows are very well done. The light spot against the statue just pulls me right into the painting.

  3. Thanks Linda
