Alan Spillett is recognised as one of Britain's foremost painters of trucking scenes with over 700 commissions to date. He portrays lorries from the 1960s, '70s and '80s, when he was a long-distance driver, as well as more recent trucks. His paintings are set in exact locations, capturing to the full the experiences of so many drivers. A Volvo easing its way along a Scottish lochside on a summer's day or an ERF setting out on a wet early morning from a factory in Kent - these are strongly evocative images. The paintings are accompanied by full captions describing the context of the pictures. There are longer features on aspects of trucking and truckers, photographs and miscellanea adding up to a fulfilling read. His images range widely through England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Alan's first book, Roadscapes, was published in 2005. The paintings in Roadscapes II have not been published in book form before and many have been prepared specially for this new book.
