In this picture, I dreamed up an idyllic scene in my head, of people arriving by hot air balloons, to a remote location, on a beautiful Summer’s day. The excited crowds would have enjoyed all manner of activities; jesters, music, and dance, even perhaps a circus in the far distant tent. There would have been food stalls providing the merry people with refreshments all day long… The bench sitting in the foreground would be the ideal vantage point for all the goings on…eventually, the end of a perfect day…’SCENE’ From a Bench – ‘After The Fair!’
This series of pictures have all been done using Oil Pastels and in each one I have placed a Bench. Always the same bench but sometimes I’ve flipped it around to suit the angle of the scene. All the pictures in this series are from my imagination and are drawn to give maximum illusion to the perspective of the landscape around and create as much depth as possible in the small images. Hence the series title, ‘ “SCENE” From A Bench’ !
