Whitby Bandstand and Smokehouses original painting on canvas
Whitby paintings like this original of the bandstand and smokehouses is one of a series produced in this tight figurative style.
The bizarre use of colour in the painting is an emotive counterpoint to the reassuring detail of crowds of people found in the middle ground of the picture.
Shadow areas would normally appear to be predominantly cold blue in this part of the world but I decided to paint the foreground shadows in hot red and orange to hint at the idea of the band playing a touch of Salsa on a hot summer evening.
Upon reflection I think a touch of heat in the sky would be appropriate too. What do you think? Email me with your thoughts. I would love to hear from you
Isn't nostalgia wonderful!
