Market Street Kirkby Lonsdale is my latest oil painting, and after returning from my framer, its in the gallery now. It was started last summer, before we started social distancing, and has been varnished and framed ready to go.
I love this part of Kirkby Lonsdale, the architecture and the interesting slight curve of the street, and in summer it’s always busy with shoppers. The white painted Sun Inn has always been a popular destination for visitors and locals, and it was this building which stands out in the sunshine that inspired me to paint this scene.
I hope that I can see this street as busy as it is in my painting again as soon as possible.
