Railway bridge

This painting has been sold

Oil on hardboard 8" x 8"

This is just one of the many bridges in Stalybridge. They all have a different character. This one is very close to my house. In fact the houses you can see right at the top are a continuation of my road. I did a Winsor violet underpainting for this one. I think the colour is right for Stalybridge views!
