Second Work for On The Surface

Title: Walking The dog Past St Pauls Size 75 x 50 cm medium Acrylic on Triple corrugated Cardboard

The second in my works on triple Cardboard titled” Walking The dog Past St Pauls “. The old St Pauls parish, now closed and possibly condemned, sits in the afternoon sun as a man walks his dog. Does he even notice this old charmer? Would he care if it wasn’t there anymore? Would anybody but this artist? Again of note is the use of the cardboard to replace the warmth of the brick. The challenge of doing these works is to blend the cardboard warmth with the pictorial elements that describe the subject. Also capturing the man was a real challenge in this one. Funnily the dog flowed easily.
