10pm in August...

'Stolen Car', oil on canvas, 29 x 37cms, 2010

I completed this new oil painting last week. It’s based on my recent nocturnal pastel study underneath the motorway. It’s only small, but it’s intimate scale seemed to work for the image. I’m pretty pleased with it, and seeing it now it seems to capture a real sense of time and place more specifically than I could have imagined. It’s at 10pm in August.

I’m already working on developing the next one.
