Rooftops

2017. Oil on canvas. 31 x 31 cm.
The rooftop paintings started when I wanted to paint the local village but there was too much clutter, so I looked up. There is a whole new visual panorama that would otherwise go unnoticed when one looks up. You feel a tremendous sense of space and freedom, like anything is possible beyond…

Many rooftops & facades are untouched by renovation and signage, retain their original character and are surprising little affected by the elements. You can only wonder what these facades have seen over their many years.

These paintings are inspired by my observations looking up.
