View Full Version : Mediaeval town

A watercolour of a fictional mediaeval town, has an Italian look about it, maybe. There is alot more that I could of done to this painting, to refine it, but my idea was to do a rather quick watercolour without becoming snowed under.;)

Paul - Watch out - DAkey will call you for dropping the ball with the details!!! This is great stuff! It looks like it could be the opening illustration to a story.

An admirable outcome, Paul, and a style that certainly bears further investigation by you. There is a fascinating admixture of detail and dream-like softness. I like the way you stopped at this point and left a lot for the imagination to fill in. Definately has an Old World Mediterranean feel to it. I can also read it, from top to bottom, as a bit of a journey through time due to the way the background is almost ghostly while the foreground stands in higher relief and the treatment at the upper left lends an air of mystical oversight and the negative space just below it lends a feeling of portentiousness and potential.

Did I mention that I really like this? :)

Perfect... just love it :):)
To me watercolour should be a fast medium so i'm glad you chose not to overwork it

A truly beauty, dear Paul! This style and approach would be superlative for historical illustrated novels!
It seems however rather a German, Dutch, Savoy or Northern French town or, in case, a Northern Italy, quite alpine, medieval city, at least looking to the architectures which much use of wood and to the steep roofs inclination ...

Dreamy and evocative--ripe with possibilities for a story!

Paul, this is really nice! The scene is drawn expertly with great composition.
