Sixbells - The Lowry

By Alan_Coles
Continuing my *experimental* project. Took this a few weeks back at the site of the Guardian, a 60ft bronze statue, a monument marking the death of 45 mine workers at the Sixbells Colliery in 1961. Whilst waiting for people to vacate the area I took some shots of the surrounding village and the people walking away from the statue. One of Lowry's famous paintings was from a view to the right of this image but I have taken my inspiration from his vision. It will be marmite like the other stuff but I really do like this...going to see if it will print up on some textured paper as I reckon it will give it a better look - as it is on screen it has depth, feel and light which if I am honest the original does not possess.

You can be honest about it folks Wink

Looks as though it's been painted on a plaster wall. I like the effect.
