Day 019…

Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow Deep Hue, Sap Green and Titanium White. Not always the colours i’m naturally drawn too but this is a detail of one of my recent acrylic paintings.



World Tour of Bath #2 – City of Bath College…

I saw this building through gaps in the buildings surrounding the spa development and headed over there.

This structure really stands out from the surrounding urban form – both from the modern cream block of the older college buildings and the Georgian era stone buildings. I absolutely love the form, style and materials, the series of vertical alternating width standing seems, but not the very dark finish – a bronze or copper would have been incredible.

Something to highlight the stark contrast – the stone building opposite with the tree shadow – tattoo anyone?


Small house – Unemori Architects…

Achingly good design – love the contrast of the ultra-modern architecture and the seemingly haphazard power-telephone lines which surround the block.

Sometimes you see a creation and want to just pull up a chair and sit in the street staring at it. This is a bridge to public art.


Window tape…

Taped up window plastic sheet draft-proofing an old kitchen window. The corners are highlighted with contrasting areas of black, using the strong outline of a coloured glass ornament and area of shadow, with strong afternoon sun through the centre.


Chair layers…

Silhouettes of two chairs (fore ground and background) on a backing of doors. I’m trying to use the contrasting lines from the horizontal and vertical.
