Green fire doors

91cm x 61cm W & N Artists’ Oil Colour

Painted at night under fluorescent Lighting at the Medlock Fine Art Centre. The picture is painted on a coarse canvas in Oils. In the centre of the picture are the sodium street lights of the Mancunian Way showing through a window and below this orange glow is a faint dark image of myself reflected in the reinforced glass. To depict the grid of wire in the glass I made fine cuts in the paint surface with a blade.

Richard is currently offering painting vacations in Dordogne (SW), France. Visit for more info.
