The Explorers

Painting entitled The Explorers by Steve Williamson


Certainly nostalgic since the inspiration was a tiny black and white photo over fifty years old, so much of it has come from my memory of the day (I was behind the camera).

I think the colouring has the feeling of a warm summer's day, and the impressionist style enhances the idea of a distant memory, manifest in the ancient design of the scooter and in the children's clothes.
