The Bridges (acrylic paint on paper)

Inspired by… CRW Nevinson's Railway Bridge, 1911

"I really enjoy this piece of work, as I like buildings and structures. I particularly like the artist’s use of colour and his depiction of the people and boats on the ship canal.

I love going into Manchester to look at landmarks, canals, roads and old buildings. I wanted to create a modern day version of the railway bridge which incorporated vibrant colours.

Attending my art class enables me to socialise and enjoy looking at, and making art."

Mark Bennett took his Art and Design Level 1, NOCN at Forum Learning in Wythenshawe with Manchester Adult Education Service.
