Bar Liquid

This painting has been sold

Oil pastel on paper 9" x 8.5"

Stalybridge is a one-horse town, but it has a surfeit of take-aways and bars which have taken over the old industrial buildings but it only takes a cold, rainy day for the former mill town spirit of the place to re-assert itself.

Very atsmosperic. Your handling of oil pastel is very painterly! Taking on the same mood and feel as your oil paintings :)

Have you heard of the Oil Pastel Society? (

They have a newsletter and gallery space for members.

I kind of like them Rob - when I was house hunting 20 odd years ago I tried looking around leafy south Manchester where the academics live and it just didn't feel right. I guess my roots are here. And we do have great countryside on our doorsteps both of us!
