One of Kingston's old style pubs is The Portsmouth Tavern, better known as 'The Ports' to local's. At the corner of Yonge and Grange streets in Portsmouth village, across from Portsmouth Olympic harbour, it's been standing since the late 1860's. The history was part of the lure of painting this old pub; but mostly, I was interested in the play of light combined with the atmosphere of happy relaxation on a summers evening.
This is just wonderful Mom!! I really love this, youve captured it perfectly!ReplyDelete
Hi Holly, thanks for your happy comment and encouragement! It took quite a while to work this one out, but I'm happy with the result now.ReplyDelete
Hi Sally, you really have captured a great deal of atmosphere and the light is great. Beautiful work!ReplyDelete
thanks Wendy! It feels good to have finally worked it out...there were niggling issues all along while I worked on it...the big one was that I lost my way for at least a month...but then i went back to it, did a lot of analyzing...then worked on the areas that bugged me...in the end it is the challenge that i like and the feeling of finding a solution, it's very satisfying.ReplyDelete
