Pub+Church+Pub Oil Painting

Here is the first completed painting for the 52 Weeks - 52 Works series.

This painting is a view of Union Row in Swindon (Wiltshire – England). The street has one pub on each corner: Longs on the left and The Old Vic on the right. At the end of the road, you can see the tower bell of Christ Church, which has been built by the railway workers.

I did this painting on location in two sessions. I started each session at 5 p.m. in order to have the same rich yellow light of the end of the day.
