About the Image.

Hot Tin View.

Glorious green roof besides a wall like molten lava on an alien world, in Manchester, With Hot Tin View I continued to experiment with texture in abstract paintings.It originated as a chance passing on a photo shoot in Manchester. I was on my way back to the car and went down one of the many small side streets in the Northern Quarter. I must have walked down this road dozens of times before  Looking left, I spotted this green warehouse.

It’s fairly new, for the area, and the addition on the top of the roof with the windows added some character to what could have been a very functional space. The Green panels create an interesting colour scheme with the yellow building in the foreground and the purple walls of the Crown Plaza hotel.The colours of each building merging to form a fluid transition. There are distinct lines, but blur.

The walls of the Plaze developed a molten appearance during creation. Like looking onto the surface of an alien planet still cooling after its creation. That had to stay. The rest of my efforts went into creating just the right green and adding texture to the Shed.
