Scott's Wonder Waltzer Detail

This detail from Scott' Funfair takes us into their celebrated Waltzer. I drew upon our shared and vivid memories of both the ride and crowds of youngsters who socialised around the interior - in the sixties the Fair was always packed and the music....need I say more? The Big Band artwork is now restored and features in a museum devoted to travelling fairground rides. The chassis of the waltzer is still in action and I took the opportunity to seek it out to perfect the scale and perspective for the painting.
