THE END OF HOPE STREET – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1040574(1)a

I wanted to do a townscape with a little more edge. This is based on Hope Street in Liverpool with a lot of paring away and more reliance on colour. I did the same scene in 2014 in a more conventional way when I started to do a set of Liverpool nightscenes. I exhibited a few but didnt get much response, though this one sold.

I feel the new version still lacks presence and I need to let go looser when building up the backdrop – so back to the drawing board, or in this case, canvas.

Other Liverpool scenes are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
