This piece gave me a chance to finally return to my streetlife series with a bit more colour and whimsy. I have been enjoying the work of a UK collage artist Mike Bernard. www.mikebernard.co.uk His depictions of markets and hillside villages are painted loosely with transparent overlapping blocks of colour . A wide variety a perspective from above and below and excellent compositions often have a blury rainy day look that manages to keep an interesting balance of abstract and representation that I like very much. The Next Step could also be another Steps piece about the excitement and anticipation of starting down a new path.
