These paintings epitomise my endeavour to find physical marks in paint for the emotional traces left by my personal contact.
The works , painted “ en plain air “ form part of this involvement with the vertical landscape, the people, the colours and the light moving between the buildings.
I move into a form of meditation while I am in the process of painting ,and once I’m released from this state of my mind the painting is finished .
Thank you to everyone who welcomed me onto your streets and sometimes unwittingly became a part of these works. – John Badcock
