BIRKDALE LIGHT – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1040128(1)a

Back to my build up of local paintings for the  Christmas exhibition. This is just around the corner from the location of some of the previous ones I have posted recently.  In fact, I posted a version of this particular view on one of my first blogs in November 2013. It sold and later I found out is was my next-door neighbour who bought it. That was a bigger painting in acrylic.

Since then things have changed and the grasping claw of big business has pushed itself amongst  the rows of independent traders that make up the commercial community. A Sainsburys opened a convenience supermarket on the other side of the road. The newsagent – next to where the two figures are standing – diversified and became a very popular real ale/cider/coffee shop ( you can see the segregated, outside seating area) when Sainsburys proposed the selling and delivery of newspapers. The cafe/bar still sells newspapers and runs delivery rounds, but now you can get a coffee, or something stronger, if you, like me, pick up your paper. It was a very shrewd move by the owner.

Other local Southport scenes can be found for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com or grahammcquadefineart.co.uk
