  1. Great, just like Hopper!

    Snooker halls are such dingy, marginal places wherever you go. I drive past one and often wish to sketch it but the traffic moves on.

  3. I’ve often wondered if I’d ever dare go in. I’m fascinated by the men jumping on and off buses during the day with only their slim cue cases. There used to be so many more of them in Steve Davis’s heyday – and a demand for waistcoats. Not sure this painting’s really me, have been planning it in some way since seeing one of your posts – the one with a contemporary landscapes link?

  4. I think this is amazing like massively good and commercial. Proper bo

    Often the strength of a piece lies in it’s standing the second time around. This has real character. Dare I say, a masculine feel? Great.

    • Thank you. After trying to do something different for years and always ending up with the same picture, I’m not sure why it worked this time. May have something to do with thinking about it for a while before starting instead of jumping in.

  6. I love this!!!!!! The allure for me is that singular yellow strip down the center of the white building shape, next to the shadowed side. It is positive and full of promise. I would frame and hang this painting. I would want to have been standing there and seeing this, one with the artist. Exciting, Outside Authority. So Heppoeresque, but so much of what I have seen wanting to burst out in your work!

    very good, artistry

  8. Trouble with these interesting-looking old buildings is that unless a preservation order is on them the dolts and busybodies in local council planning departments want to see them knocked down so they can build yet more ugly concrete walls… 🙂
