This is a new painting is wasn't done for college just for my own pleasure, as it was snowing at the time and it ended up a snow scene. It is a fantasy painting of Stockport compromising of different strong elements of Stockport it is set in mid 60s at 6:05am. The clock time is when my mum past away and has appeared in a few of my paintings always the same time.

I had a look at Northern artists some that I've mentioned above that have painting townscape of Stockport and Manchester areas. I also researched into postcards, videos, photographs of the area and looked into shops, adverts, vehicles, street scenes from the 60s and researched half a dozen books about Stockport. Once researched I got some ideas rolling:

After about 3 weeks work of I managed to complete the painting to a reasonable standard. I would have liked to put snowflakes all over the image but I didn't have the bottle to do this, maybe I will do a smaller copy and try it with that one. Hope you like the painting any comments good or bad are most welcome, some comments already.
