The Time In Between

The title refers to the time before one activity, after another activity has ceased. A limbo period filled with change checking in her purse, as she waits for her bus to arrive.
The composition is, as with many of my works, influenced the diagonal compositions as used by Henri Cartier-Bresson. The colouring is influenced by American artists such as Hopper and Eric Bowman. I have deliberately tried to imbue this portrait with pathos, elevating a mundane act into something semi sacred, as the light is Cathedral-like as it shines through the glass roof of Swansea Bus Station onto her chunky cable knit cardigan.
