An Edwardian Townscape

Today my painting is a scene of Manchester. I chose an old photograph as reference to see the architecture that existed at the time and then I adopt my own palette and composition. I move buildings about to suite and put in things to create a bit of interest. In the main a mood rather than topographical or architectural accuracy is my intension. This is what I also like to paint and for some reason this period comes into my townscapes regulary.
I hope you enjoy this painting.

This is beautiful, and perfectly captures European weather in December! I just spent an enjoyable few minutes looking at your work. This is my first visit to your blog, but not my last.

Hi Trevor-

I was happy to find your link through John Salmon's blog. Your work is great. This one reminds me of John Singer Sargents watercolors of Venice.
