The artist recalls that the picture was done in Scotland at the time of his second solo exhibition at the 57 Gallery in Edinburgh. The palette and subject matter naturally invites comparison with paintings by the so called Kitchen Sink artists although this is co-incidental as Tindle was not associated with that group.
