TREES AND CHIMNEY POTS IN LITTLE CROSBY – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1040552(1)a

As I said in my last blog I completed one project – now on to the next … . This is a painting for a group show in November. I need eight paintings for it and I already have a couple. The event takes place in the old Manor Hall  of  Little Crosby. This is a small village set at the northern end of Liverpool. So last Monday morning being bright and sunny I got up early and headed down to the area near the exhibition. I had to take photos  of Little Crosby as this small lane gets choked with traffic on the school run – not a place to be painting plein air – I could barely cross the road. This will be one of two paintings of the village. I have painted the scene before and the morning light warming  the faces of the  stone built cottages – some as old as the 17th century – gives great passages of light and shade. More will follow.

Other paintings of Liverpool and Little Crosby are on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. I would love to walk that street, if only to see the homes from that time period. What’s more, I really like your color palette for these. I’ve said it before – you capture light and shadow so well, I’m always amazed. Wishing you a great show in November Graham.
