|Market Place Heanor 35 x 45 cm acrylic on canvas|
This picture seemed to take an age to do, from looking at the photo to visiting the location over and over again.
Market Place Heanor is somewhere I'm very familiar with, I use to live in Heanor and Id walk up and down here on my daily commute 6.30 am in the morning and 6.30 pm on my weary way home at night.
I never seemed to get when it was open and full of shoppers only when all the doors were locked and the road sweepers were out. These days I pass through frequently as I head for the budget supermarket to fill my trolley full of strange German sounding items! Shops have come and gone the tanning parlours making way for mobile phones, but still it just clings to life adapting through hard times.
There's something wonderful about a high street a mix of people all going about their business dodging each other and saying sorry a lot as you do in the UK .
I must say Im really enjoying painting these street scenes so much so I decided to incorporate it as part of my business. So now I'm offering da da dah..........
