This took a while

I have just finished this painting of Jessie Shirley’s Bone and Flint Mill.

The building is at Etruria in Stoke on Trent and has the last remaining steam engine which was used to grind bone and flint to use in bone china pottery. Its an impressive building and is quite complicated to paint. The mortar and bricks were  particularly difficult.

The steam engine is going to be working later in the year.

Its a small wide canvas to give a panoramic view. Acrylic paints help speed the drying and allowed me to paint clear details with fine brushes, I hope people like the result.20180122_020733
