A City Under Construction
AS I continue with my series of line drawings, I'm developing sub-themes to utilise my new-found taste for detail.
Hence, I've recently produced Building a Skyscraper and Building a Ship, not to mention Building Aeroplanes.
This latest example, Building a City, shows my little bowler-hatted builders putting the finishing touches to a completed city, dabbing paint here and there, hammering nails, hanging off guttering, climbing ladders and even sitting atop roof ridges.
It's all nonsense, of course, but - as Edward Lear proved beyond all doubt - nonsense has its place in art, especially if your intended audience are youngsters of a certain age.
What I like about this picture is its total disregard for perspective and its innocent exploration of the improbable.
Observant admirers will also notice a number of Cornish flags, put there for no good reason other than a personal appreciation of my adopted home county.
Hope you like it.
