Old Cricket Pavilion

It's been much too wet to paint outdoors, this week. Not wanting to the lose the momentum I'm building, I painted this one from a photograph. It's an old disused cricket pavilion, at the same location as my lost post. When I was a small boy, many years a go, it was used regularly but now it is fenced off; to protect it from the youth element and the youth from the asbestos in its roof.

The subject of the picture is quite different from what I'm used to and some months a go I probably wouldn't have attempted it. It was a great learning experience, although I'm not sure I've got the colours of the buildings quite right.
