'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.
