‘Wiltshire Cul-De-Sac’ by Carole Tonge
During last year I became fascinated with the construction of the new higher education college round the corner from where I live. I made hundreds of drawings, filling sketchbooks with images of the cranes and people moving across the site. Working from these drawings back in my studio I think this painting tells the story of the construction. Acrylic was the perfect medium to use and by applying the paint in unconventional ways I think this painting captures the colours and textures of the place.
