Northern Heritage

Today watercolour shows a scene from the past. Sadly alot of our architecture as dissappeared with town modernisation. Using reference from an old B+W photo I have tried to recreate the atmoshere of the time. Done on full imperial paper, this was painted rapidly to maintain the looseness but to suggest detail were possible.

I've always loved your style Trevor. The images you paint are almost in a dreamlike vision. I am always happily lost in your images.

hello Sheila
Thank you so much. You are always there to give encouragement. I appreciated that so much.
Kind Regards

Trevor, Sheila is absolutely right - this work does have a wonderful dreamlike quality. There is a suggestion of movement that adds to this effect. I like how the blue ties different parts of the painting together and keeps the eye moving. Very well done indeed.

I really like the composition of this painting. The sky is great too. xoxo

It looks like a scene from a great epic movie! Your strokes are impressively expressive. The idea of a limited palette works great...you are a master, Trevor!

Great work as ever. I've always liked that brown/turquoise colouration. I prefer your paintings to Lowrys.
