Fragments of the City II

Just so you can see what I've been up to.

I do love Blue City, and Pink City is very good too. The other long panel came up too dark on my monitor to be able to see it very well.

The large piece looks... like I remember Sheffield city centre after a home match at Bramall Lane - the sweepings at the end of the day in the market :-)

That's not a derogatory comment - it's just the detritus of the city thing came off really well, I reckon

Thank you! 'Blue' and 'Pink' did work well - much to my astonishment.

The other one (that you can't see well) is more 'urban gritty'.

The big collage is exactly that - detritus. I wanted to communicate the chaos, the mess, the noise and bustle of the city - particularly as we'd just been in the sales at the time. Urgh!

Gosh, those are very realistic, unfortunately. The long panel reminds me of "A Clockwork Orange."
Rome is loaded with trash of all kinds even grafitti on some of the beautiful buildings. I may have mentioned this before. Boston is fairly clean, but I guess that is due to the heavy fines. Parts of New York are very trashy.
Good job, well done! Was it fun in the end?

Connie,
It was fun, once I got the hang of it. I found the best thing was just to start with something, stick it down, then find something that followed on from it. If I thought too much about what I was doing, I got frustrated.

I'm sorry Rome was spoiled with trash. You did mention the graffiti before. It's a shame.
