Today’s Art (27th June 2016)

As you can probably see, this painting required an epic amount of digital editing and effects after I scanned it.

Basically, this was a painting I made quite a while back (since there’s usually quite a long delay between making a painting and posting it on here) of some roadworks that I saw on a roundabout near Havant.

Because it was at night, the angular steel fences, the headlights and the lights of the town in the distance looked exactly like something from a cross between “Blade Runner”, “Terminator” and several music videos by The Sisters Of Mercy.

In other words, they were somehow the coolest roadworks that I’ve ever seen.

And, although I originally tried to make a “serious” painting of this scene, it didn’t look that interesting – so, thanks to quite a bit of digital editing (using MS Paint, Paint Shop Pro 6 and GIMP multiple times), I turned it into something a bit closer to what was going through my imagination at the time.

As usual, this painting is released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND licence.
