A lesson from Lowry.

This week I visited the Lowry Exhibition  at Tate Britain.

He had a technical training.

This precision is depicted in his drawings of houses, fences and industrial  landscape.

He is a master of perspective.

His use of colour was a surprise to me.

Houses and buildings were shaded in a range of pastel colours.

Others were depicted in black as a contrast.

Sometimes clothes were shown in strong colour.

I came away hoping that I could apply his techniques  to my own work.

The lessons I have learnt from Lowry will last forever!
