Bristol Savages Sketch Night - "Et nova et vetera"

Bristol savages et nova et vetera

Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Bristol Savages Wednesday night sketch topic chosen by the Chairman was "et nova et vetera" - Latin for new and old.  So I interpreted this with a scene of a village market being the old and a sign for a supermarket some distance away as the new.  Maybe a double message is the elderly figure walking towards us perhaps only being able to access the local market?  I don't know.  Done in our normal 2 hour time limit plus you're not allowed any reference material or photos etc.

Painted on Saunders Waterford Cold Press paper, 300 gms.
