Working with these colours was the blast of sunshine I needed, as winter persists here in Montreal. I usually like to inject a little complementary colour into my work, for drama and excitement, and in this case that would have meant a bit of blue-violet. But in the end I decided to stick with the analogous scheme of orange-red, orange, yellow-orange, yellow and yellow-green.
Camden Town #2
In this re-working of the image, I wanted to capture the syncopated rhythm of the windows, and I think I have been successful with that.
Below you can see my first Camden Town piece, for which I chose the central door as a focal point.
And below is the original photo, which I took this summer from a window in the Amy Winehouse Museum in Camden, just north of London. The shapes and lines appealed to me, and lend themselves to a variety of palettes.
Sometimes it's helpful to rotate the image, to see if the composition is successful. What do you think?
