Snatches of Tramline, acrylic on canvas,40X33

Snatches of Tramline, is a quote from a poem by W.H.Auden, wonderful ! A description of a defunkt industrial lanscape in Northern England.Here I have used an almost monochrome palette, which is also a part of Exploring Black, a theme which interests me at the moment, of which Black and Light is also a part.
