This painting began as a ‘live painting’ at a pub, live bands were doing their thing and as they did I worked on this beauty leaned against a brick wall in the back of the venue. There are quite a few image references within the painted surface that relate to the specific pub I was in at the time. I do this kind of thing a lot in my work, it is urban plein air painting, although I include painting indoors in this classification, thats why I tend to call my work a paintamentary, a documentary as seen through a painter’s eye and brush, any location, anytime.
