I received a commission to paint a school for a great teacher that retired after many years working in this school. It is a very special building and as I had only short time I painted a sketch in water colours and did the main painting in Acrylics. There were so many details and windows that for the first time I used the squares to divide my page and get the building right in perspective. I have tried to paint it more freely as I thought it will give the building a better feeling and interesting character as I saw it, instead of doing it with very straight square lines. To me it was a very special building as I saw it from the outside with great history and I wanted to give it more life while painting it. After all the idea was to paint it and not to photograph it. I hope the teacher enjoyed their present as much as I enjoyed painting this amazing building.
