Bring it on Home / Watercolour on RWS Paper 20″x 13″ inches
Long afternoon shadows permeate this luminous watercolour by Trevor with it’s typically humble yet simple subject matter. A man rides a donkey carrying shopping with a harvest of groceries, probably gathered from the Egyptian fields. The wide roadway with no other traffic suggests it’s time is during siesta. There is a background of local palms giving shade. Trevor has captured the light and time of day in this superb offset composition evoking the atmosphere of a local scene using an economy of brushwork. The sandy and blue colourations are a counterpoint to the complimentary colours of the rider.
