An Impressionism Style Acrylic Townscape / Landscape 

Painting of a busy shopping street in my home town of Barnsley,

near Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England. 

In the background of the scene is Club Hedonism - the building 

used to be part of the old Co-op complex. To the left, just out of 

view is the Alhambra Shopping Centre.


Acrylic Paint was loaded onto a coarse Hog's Hair Paint Brush and 

dragged across a textured white gesso ground to give a broken effect. 

The colours are muted and slightly hazy. 


In the foreground of the Painting the Barnsley shoppers are quickly 

Sketched in with dry-brushed Paint to give a feeling of movement.


Just down the road from here is where the big lorry parked which brought 

the famous Blue Whale into town. (I remember seeing it even though I 

was very young).
