|Looking at the marathon from Alexandra Park 10"x8" oil on board|
And I needed encouragement as this painting had the worst start I can ever recall. I felt I completely forgot how to paint and every brushstroke looked like it was done by a two years old! No, actually kids can produce great work so let's say it looked like it was done by a drunken dog. But I persevered and finally that turning point happened and I can now say this is one of my favourite paintings! So basically, never give up!
Here is a detail of the painting below. I had to paint the people quickly as they didn't stay around for long, so I just suggested them with a couple of brushstrokes.
Here are a few pictures to prove what an amazing view you get in this park:
