It’s been pretty overcast and gloomy out there, although that doesn’t seem to have put off the shoppers at Stamford’s weekly market. The other day I caught a quick glimpse of weary shoppers waiting for the bus – and here’s my small oil sketch. They do all look rather morose – maybe the weather didn’t help! Working with a limited palette is all well and good – and I have found lots of ways to mix brown and grey for this one! – but I am starting to hanker for something a little more colourful.
