'Barcelona' , 'San Diego', 'Aircraft over Aberdeen'

 Three large harbour paintings from the 90's, a place can be defined by its' shape...

'Barcelona'  180x140cms

'Aircraft over Aberdeen'   180x120cms

'San Diego'  180 x 100cms

I really liked San Diego spending a week there on my travels. The orientation is switched so that north is at the top of the painting, the angled line is the Mexican border.  It is a painting of curves with the man-made elements picked out in tuned-up colours and straight lines and angles.  In the detail below I love the interplay and repeated motif of the cranes and the harbour-arms, aerial-view and image in harmony.
