Nightmare On Kensington Street
In my continuing quest for colour in urban environments here is another painting of graffiti art, again in Kensington Street, Brighton. Compositionally this was a tricky one as the graffiti is such a dominating element so I chose to have the lightest part of the painting in the background and tried to subdue the light colours in the graffiti. The other point of the picture is painting hard focus against soft. Anyone who knows this street will see that I have cheated with the placement of the graffiti against the background of Sydney Street. 18 1/2" x 18 1/2" oil on board.
