Cityscape #6 Oil on panel 10″x8″


Cityscape #6 Oil on Panel 10″x8″

A study for two larger works on the easel at present. I am enjoying reverting to black, white and greys with just a few touches of colour with these cityscapes.

I find that this scheme lends itself very wellto the mood and atmosphere that I am trying to capture.

New Painting – Untitled – rainy night street scene, Oil 48″ x 30″


On the easel, a new painting started today. In this first session, the canvas has been covered with a yellow ochre ground. Some figures have been established, two more foreground figures have yet to be sketched in on the right side where a couple of wiped out areas can be seen. some dark and light ‘landmark’ areas have been sketched in to etablish relative positions in the painting and some parts of buildings are suggested.
I’ll post more photos as the painting progresses. Feel free to make suggestions!

A Walk In The Park – A modern take on Edouard Manet


A Walk In The Park‘A Walk In The Park’ by Nikki Rosetti. Acrylic no canvas 20″x20″ (c)2008

Inspire by the compositional style of Edouard Manet, this painting concentrates on the bold figure exiting the canvas with background supporting figures.I was trying to capture the feel of such paintings as Manets ‘La Serveuse De Bocks’ which has just this feel. This painting was sold to a collector in Greece.
