Is there are reason why all the houses in St. John's are so colorful? Probably the bad weather induced the people to choose colors that make them happy. The spring weather in St. John's is quite disappointing, with many gray days. However when the sun shines the city show its beauty in a glow of color. with such an intensity that it is a delight to paint it. The Gower street is the most important heritage street in St. John's. An emsamble of old wood houses.
For this watercolor I started to paint the shadows in order to catch the moment in case I have to move or the weather conditions changes, but that have the consequence that from the beginning I obtain a strong contrast in the painting.
