Project potential

This is the kind of site that to me, has great potential for drawing and painting projects. There is something about neglect and the resulting decay as nature reclaims surfaces at different speeds. The process throws up interesting combinations; unlikely colours with the ‘wrong’ textures, subtle patterns in stark compositions, the mechanical and industrial together with the fragile or picturesque. Fab.

Blue sky and yellow canopy, geometric patterns of shadows all combine at this temporarily neglected site.

  1. Completely agree with you thoughts on neglected sites, there is something about them, those everyday sites that I think most people pass without noticing.

    But when painted like this, they become something else. I’m into painting similar subjects myself at the minute. I like this one a lot Alan, nice one!
