Tyne Bridge Newcastle upon tyne

I have painted this scene many many times from life and from photos, I can paint it without a reference hanging upside down with both hands tied behind my back while people throw rocks at me , sorry!, during the 90s I used to sell my paintings at a Sunday Art Market situated on Armstrong Bridge in Newcastle and the sales from this image alone used to keep me going, I am about to start a new series of Plein Air paintings, working on the streets of Newcastle and Hexham, this was a small warm up painting.
