Bascule Bridge


The picture above is part of the same series I referred to yesterday however it does have a closer link to Carmarthen. The picture features part of the mechanism of the Bascule Bridge at Johnstown. The colours are cooler than the rest of the series.I no longer have the painting. The Bascule Bridge has featured in several of my paintings which I guess reflects my interest in mechanical things. I have in the past made working steam models and boilers and as I have said before I was interested in steam locomotives as a child. The remnants of that bygone age still carry a nostalgic interest for me even it seems in a fairly abstract work.
