Artist’s Statement

I've seen this view on endless occasions having lived in Manchester for 12 years. It's the route the bus takes leaving the city centre heading towards South Manchester. The piece is done from a quick photo taken while the bus stopped at the lights. I left the cars in the foreground, hopefully giving the viewer a true feeling of being in the situation. I particularly like the perspective seeing the street stretch away into the distance with the skyscraper in the background.

Virtual Images - Where artworks are shown framed or within a room setting the images have been created using virtual/augmented reality software in some instances. The images are provided to give an idea of the scale of the artwork in the context of a room and the style of the framing. They should not be viewed as completely accurate e.g. the scale and the style/colours of the frame may vary slightly. 

An online gallery with an augmented reality option is very forward looking and very appealing to the buyer.

The picture arrived this afternoon, very well packed and in excellent condition. It is indeed a very fine picture.

The painting is received and is a really nice small study-like work...

Thank you very much for all your help.
