The Old Angel Inn, Nottingham


The Old Angel Inn, Nottingham
Watercolour on watercolour paper
8 1/4" x 11 3/4"


Another painting from the exhibition, this shows the upper floors of the Old Angel Inn in the Lace Market district of Nottingham. This pub is a very popular venue for new bands in Nottingham. In its long history, it has been used as a church and as a brothel, but not at the same time (I think).

Beautifully done, John.

I haven't visited in a while. I assume you're working hard... but I hope you're painting and showing also... This one bound to be in someone's home by now!!

Thanks for all your comments.
This one actually sold on ebay. Unfortunately work has, for various reasons, taken over my life and I haven't been doing much art work. However, I am determined to change this. I have got some work to post that I did a couple of months ago. I'll try and do that this weekend. I've got a couple of paintings I haven't touched for a while that I'm going to start working on again.

Glad work is working... Hope you begin to squeeze in some time to enjoy your art!
