Osbournes Old Leigh High Street




Osbornes Old Leigh
Oil on board 12" x 16"

I very nearly finished this painting yesterday afternoon except for a couple of details like a bit of lettering on the sign that need tickling into shape.   Last year I got into the habit of sketching before teaching my classes on a Wednesday morning.   This year I thought I'd try and get into some early morning painting,   It was raining to start with and the light was so flat though that I managed to carry on in the afternoon.    I've fancied painting this view for a wile now.   A couple of years ago I  painted this one from the spot about where the bin lorry is but looking the other way and on a sunny day.
