A Northwich Christmas

'A Northwich Christmas', Acrylic on board...

This is my home town in all it's Christmas glory. I really enjoyed painting this for Anthony at the Chronicle. I was quite nervous earlier when I took it to their office. Everyone crowded round to see as I took it out of the bag. I think they were expecting a snow covered scene of Cheshire and were pleasantly surprised. It will be published on the front page of the Christmas edition of the Northwich Mail.

I have wanted to do some night paintings of Northwich ever since seeing the work of Manchester artist, Liam Spencer.
