Bill Sharp-

As a point of reference, I am going to add Bill Sharp to my list of research material. He is an artist/ painter of urban landscapes, in which many of his paintings have similar subject matter to my photographs. He primarily uses oil and watercolour paints, yet sometimes ventures into the world of mixed-media. 

Below are some examples of his recent work:

I have to say that I am not a fan of expressionist paintings, moreover I know that the fine art style of image doesn't support my style of work nor my preferred method of working, yet the subject matter does. I think the images above show, like my photographs, how our natural landscapes are being destroyed with the growth/ development of underpasses, train tracks and general construction.
