Original Vintage Painting on Card

Two well-acquainted central figures are discussing something quite intently. There are also three seated figures taking a load off using the shade of a wall. I am thinking this is a breaktime on a building site or other industrial setting and it’s a hot day.

Using mixed media with stylised shapes and sketchy detail the artist has really been able to capture the feeling of the moment, I can feel the heat and the sweat of the men on the floor and the comradery of the men conversing.

It is unsigned but for me is an accomplished work and has an almost Doris Hatt, Festival of Britain kind of vibe to it.

The painting is generally in good vintage order there are a few small areas of wear and some scratches but nothing too serious. Please see photos.

Overall measurements: 43cm x 31cm.
