Dartmouth, England, 15" x 11".
Roseville Street in Dartmouth, looking towards the distant hills which rise above the town. Some things are fairly fixed in a composition - where the landscape is, where a house is and to some extent where parked cars might be. But when it comes to figures they of course could be anywhere and I always analyse after a painting how appropriately placed my figures were. For example, I could have put a lighter coloured figure at the end of the street, highlighted against the shadows, or maybe those two figures on the right could have been more centrally placed and their lower halves lost in the car shadows.
