Medium: Oil on canvas, 73 x 100 cm
In the hazy yellow light of a summer evening, the last embers of the dying heat envelope the Pont d’Aquitaine and surrounding trees in a rosy glow. Detail is lost and the silhouetted form of the bridge appears to rise towards a cooler sky. From here the bridge seems deserted and only the leggy streetlights appear to stride regimentally across its span.
The near monochrome colour scheme allowed an emphasis on structure shape and form; the vertical lines dividing and slicing the canvas into a separate parts, whilst to the right a wild foliage invades the open space.
