Stevenage Town Watercolour and Ink Drawing on Watercolour Paper "I love to visit Stevenage, it has a good variety of shops and cafes. I love the sculptures and architecture too. My art is therapeutic hence I draw freely, using colour as a filler ! I would describe myself as a Painter Of Britain." by Ann Whitton
I have tried to represent Stevenage in a purely abstract style that has reference to art of the time of the'New Towns'. I have always considered the New Towns a bold experiment that for me largely worked. In a sense I have tried to interpret elements of the urban landscape, the circular part of my painting could be a roundabout for example. Above all within simple parameters I have tried to give the painting a kinetic element to represent the ongoing development of the town and all New Towns. by David Bremner.
I decided to base my image on the Area of Hatfield my home town, listening to the Audio description of Ken Wright photographing the development of New Towns and Hatfield “Bangers & Mash”. I was interested in the story of Barbara Cartland visiting Hatfield, the storm damage and the workmen helping local people with moving out to new temporary accommodation. The Bangers and mash food and Ken Wright with his camera.
