The Sett Layers : Acrylic on canvas

‘The Sett Layers’ (2014)

A group of contracted workers very kindly allowed me study them laying sett stones (Belgian block paving) on the street where I live. The ceramic drains had cracked and needed to be replaced. The hole the figure is standing in (foreground) was much deeper originally and was back filled with soil, and compacted, before the final layer of concrete and setts could be laid. This final layer is the stage I’ve captured.

Thank you to Ben (front), Terry (middle) and Steve (Back, grab driver).
