Liverpool painting. May I Start, May I Finish. Regent Road

Another place I've never mooched around before, and that's Bramley More Dock, on the Dock road right facing Terry's Timber yard. Unfortunately I could only work from sketches and photos etc as I couldn't get right into the dock. I was told by secuirity to get in touch with the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board and I might get access. There are so many painting opportunies for undisturbed plein air studies that I might just try and get access. These are the parts of liverpool we never see, some of it left and deserted...just waiting to be painted before it becomes something new, clean and business like. I could spend weeks documenting these places just as the sun's going down last thing at night. Painting into the light like this mutes the colours and reduces everthing to multi toned shapes.

Another crop of wonderful paintings. Would be great to see them on exhibition all together.
