I met a bloke who who was painting by the roadside (oddly enough in deep surburbia), he was painting by the junction. Some of his paintings go to Brazil (apparently they are very keen on ‘English paintings’ and have been snapping them up like hotcakes).
He told me that a cyclist had gone by and gave him a lot of verbal for ‘being at the junction.’ (even though he was painting safely on the verge). Neither of us could understand what the nutter cyclist was going on about.We both agreed he was a sad old git.
Anyway, back to the painting.
The artist was having a job making surburbia look nice. He did somehow try and find ways to make it less boring. He also found it hard to make it look British because of the foreign cars in the driveway ‘they alll look the same’. I did say that he conveyed the potholey road very well and he did a brilliant job of the cyclist peddling through. Turns out that he even drew the scummy cyclist in.
