(acrylic on canvas, 8x8 ins)
This painting has been sitting propped up in my studio for months. My Regular Reader will remember it began as a sketchbook drawing done in Durham Market Place:
Some time later, I tried making it into a painting, but didn't like how it was looking and put it to one side.
A bit later, I decided to get rid of the buildings in the background and replace them with a big sky and some sea, but even that didn't satisfy. Today, for some reason I can't honestly bring to mind, I saw the picture and immediately thought of bunting. So that's what I added and to me it's the perfect answer to a very problematic painting.
