Art School, Lace Market, Nottingham

After yet another long, long period of not posting, I have, at last got round to sorting out some recent work

Art School, Lace Market,Nottingham
Artist quality watercolours on watercolour paper
8 1/4" x 11 3/4"

This painting was included in an exhibition of art work I had just before Christmas, inspired by buildings in the Lace Market district of Nottingham. It shows the exterior of the building occupied by the Lace Market School of Art, Design, Media and Fashion. On the other side of the road from this is the more famous, and very handsome, Adams building, also belonging to the Art School. However, I decided to paint this more sedate building as I really like the red door set between the two windows with the surrounding brickwork radiating out (but I'm going to be doing some paintings of the Adams building as well!!).
