Torness Power Station


This is the thing, the thing that I wrote about on Saturday night.  Although it is quite a lot different from a sketched idea that forced its way into my mind, I think this is good.  I think this is what needed to happen.  Today I am taking this to the framers so that I can take the complete article to something that will cause me to hold my breath and pray to be lucky again.

I’ll report back on this in a few weeks.


I am an artist living and working in a rather gorgeous city. My art can be purchased in various shops throughout the city as well as from my online shop. Most of my work is for commission, private and corporate. I am the founder of Crash Course in Art History Limited.

  1. Yeah, that is gorgeous. Congratulations!

    I always like a nice mid-tone grey to set off other colours – its hard to tell from looking at the image on my phone quite what colour the sky textile is, but maybe it’s a neutral mid-tone grey? And the image composition seems to be generally along the lines of the Golden Mean. But however you did it, it’s a very arresting image.


  2. Hi Pete,
    Yes. The Golden Mean. As I was positioning the pieces and cropping the work, I think I automatically just went there. I knew this was happening so to try to create a bit more interested, I nudged it just off the Golden Mean. I am aware that I tend towards the Golden Mean so do make attempts to side step it, but only slightly.
    And gray. Yes. It’s a colour I should explore more often.
