I’ve been making work around the area where I live for a while, in particular two new paintings in the last couple of months. So I thought it was worth gathering them together here.
Towards Tickhill Road from the bus stop.
This one is the reverse view of an earlier painting from a position down the road to the left of the above image.
Two trees Balby from Clayfields
I’ve also been working on a series of bus stop paintings, one painting straight to the surface without any drawing and the next drawn out to scale.
Wordsworth Avenue from the bus stop, 7:00 am
First Bus Stop painting. Wordsworth Avenue from Sandford Road at 7:12 am.
Finally a painting from my front window looking towards Byron Avenue.
View from the living room towards Byron Avenue.
These are beginning to build to a nice set of images, I’m thinking of painting pictures from all the bus stops leading into Doncaster.
First post since August, what more do you need to tell you I work in education?
So I’ve reached the end of the year with a mental block only marginally released by walking the dogs. The images are based on piles of gardening materials left on a council plot behind the local Academy.I started to produce the images before I took the photograph. There are more of them on the galleries page of this blog.
I have begun to work the idea up with series of larger drawings, but early days yet.
