A lovely scene, I like the old and the new, also good use of color - lots of character in this.

Thankyou for your comments, sincerely appreciated. I was experimenting here, using imagination to juxtapose the old and the new. A bit like me, getting old, but valiantly trying to keep up with the new (you have to when you teach!)_

Brilliant design, colour combinations, draughtsmanship and atmosphere. You have succeeded in expressing the thoughts I have when I visit a city with old churches and buildings that have become overshadowed by architectural abominations.... a feeling of loss but the joy of finding them still intact.

Many thanks for your comments, I think you've hit the nail on the head- just the sentiments I was trying to express

Love the composition and the great colour. There is something fanciful and charming about this.

Artist Statement
for Tony Stubbs
Tony StubbsRapidly leaving 60 behind
Working full time as lecturer(electronic engineering), but try to keep my hand in.
No real formal training , but copious encouragement by inspiring art teacher has has kept me motivated even after over forty years!
I like to work in many mediums, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, ink, pencil, coloured pencil, charcoal etc and sometimes experiment with mixing with various degrees of success.
I am now trying to escape from the tight painting style that I have been used to doing, examples of which are seen here.

I have noticed PopArt seems to get less comments than other forms of art, is it because it is thought of as a 60's thing or is there another reason?
This very cheeky Graham and I love it,, especially the bright colours. No doubt about you having a go at anything and coming up trumps every time. Big... view answer
