This is a recent oil painting from a new project which I am calling “Urban minimalism“. My “rules” for composition and painting:- No cars No People Bright light. There must be shadows – at diagonals if possible. Simplified forms – there must be little detail in the final painting. I found this the most challenging “rule” to stick to. I wanted to explore the interplay of the geometry of shadows and man-made structures – the tension between the 3D buildings and the 2D shadows. The simplified blocks of colour. Shadows are one of the earliest ways man has used to mark time and seeking out the long shadows that mark the rising or falling of the sun in the morning and evening are a reminder that the empty spaces are only temporarily so. Sketty is a middle class suburb of Swansea in Wales, UK.
