Green Belt Grey Belt

As industrial farming grows, the traditional countryside view of green fields, trees, crops and animals gives way to polytunnels, coated aluminium sheet roofing, concrete yards, greenhouses and floating sea cages.

As the population of the World grows, we demand more food from the earth and ocean than it can produce naturally.  In an attempt to communicate this to those who reproduce in their millions without slowing down, I have started to sketch a series of ideas for future paintings.

This is my first sketch:
