Something beyond the Mini Roundabout.

Have changed the crop of this painting as I think it looked too symmetrical, too conventional and picturesque, prefer the off balance feel of this.

Simon, this is so evocative. You're pursuing some very subtle and elusive ideas/effects in these recent paintings, and succeeding admirably.

Thanks a lot for the comments Don, glad to know you think I am on the right path. I concur greatly with your recent comments on your inability to stick to a single "style", and realise my work can likewise be split into intuitive paintings which are a process and a journey, and secondly the more "realist " works which have a definite goal.

Simon, you want to come to the essence of the painting.
Painting, painting.
Of there to the abstract fodder that there is few distance.

I like this one, Simon, and I like the way that I'm aware of looking more deeply with this painting.

Thanks Linny, I intended the second version (Above) to have more expressive brushstrokes, for the painting to let the medium have more of a natural say. But second version has ended up with less rather than more expressive application, oh well, an opportunity missed.
