Oil Painting 56 – The German Market, Birmingham

By Rob Pointon

The German Market, Birmingham

Masses of moving intense colours filling a composition. The painting was mainly completed in dull daylight although there was a golden hour everyday at twilight when there was still enough light to see the palette and painting but little enough so that the bright lights of the carousel made it scream out in the landscape. I enjoy how recognisable but not complete horse shapes appear out of the puzzle of moving colour. The vertical railings looping around the ride cast really interesting strobing patterns of light when the daylight had gone completely.
