Tuesday (re-work)

This painting has been sold

Oil on plywood panel 8" x 8"

Tuesdays are particularly quiet in Stalybridge. The custom always was in this area that the shops closed on Tuesdays and some of them still keep to that. The bulding on the right was a factory, now converted into apartments. It still feels like a mill to me thank goodness but maybe that's good design on the architect's part.
It's a typical dank and foggy December day with a lone motor cyclist making his way through the small town. The brightest thing in the picture is the back light of his bike.

Lovely composition. I like how the places in your paintings always seem so familiar :-)

Rob, that is great to hear. In fact as your comment came through I had already re-posted the image on this one. Sometimes making the digital image of the painting for the blog causes me no end of difficulty and sometimes it is just straightforward. Do you find that?

Since the above comments I have re-worked this painting (July 2009) as there were areas that I just felt needed it. I am a bit more content with it now.
