I have been saving this painting to post, as I did it during a painting day with Haslemere art society a few weeks ago. I’ve only just joined them, a friendly bunch, and I am in their annual exhibition starting Saturday at Haselmere Museum.

I made the mistake of liking this subject but initially painting too big an area of it. The first attempt had the whole door and some of the street, it didn’t work, and I scrapped it and started again. This time really honing what it was I liked about the subject, and making a stronger composition. Pleased with this version now!
